Waxcaps favour short moss rich grassland where there has been no ploughing or artificial fertiliser applied. Sites containing a variety of species indicate an ancient grassland site was once present.
Please tell us if you see any of these colourful waxcaps in Northumberland National Park. Your data will help us learn more about these rare fungi and conserve their habitats.
Please take photos of any waxcaps that you find and we will try to identify them for you. You can email your photos to [email protected] and let us know where you saw them.
