New Forest version

We were told that this species is normally on cut or fallen sections of Beech,in the last stages of decay.Certainlly the one we added to the toothed fungus report for the New Forest was on a collapsing section of beech by the roadside.
Beech decayed or otherwise in North Hampshire does not seem to carry these species! Shame!

I added a CATE record recently of H coralloides on a partly rotted beech log in West Sussex but, no records from Surrey.

Around Petworth?
Some years ago( about 2000?)---There was a Hericium erinaceus on the Midhurst -Petworth road(A272?) at a sharp corner 15 ft plus up a Beech--we were advised of its existence---but the supplier of the information suggested the road should be blocked first before climbing out of the car to attempt to see and photograph it. We decided to remain "chicken" and didn't go to see it. I suppose we could have done several drive-pasts!
We did the road-blocking once (with 3 other cars) dn a back lane where a rare helleborine was just below the brow of the hill.Got our pix and moved off causing confusion among the locals.

The "coralloides" is about 10km from "hericium" but not too surprising considering the numbers of Beech in West Sussex.
Problem with West Sussex is the large estates with many trees that are not particularly accessable.Bob Lord at Pagham said if he saw 4 Landowners on conservation business he had covered most of the County!
