"Magic forest moments." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: Magic forest moments. (Contract pics)

Red spotted carpet design.
On returning from Scalp Mountain on the Inishowen peninsula (Donegal) I tired of the extremely rough ground and had a go walking through the fairly well developed Sitka spruce of the forest. It was relatively easy to walk through and in places there was the spooky look you sometimes get where there's moss growing on the lower branches. But what a surprise underfoot. There was by far the greatest number I have ever seen of these red fungi. The photo shows one small part of this carpet. They stretched all around for hundreds of metres.

Does anyone know what the proper name for these things is? Are they edible or will you die if you eat them?
