“I was really pleased to find a number of Pink Waxcaps (Hygrocybe calyptriformis) in a pasture where I had never seen them before. Also known as Ballerinas, Pink Waxcaps are rare and declining right across Europe, but seem to be a little more frequent in Britain. As they mature, the cap splits and curls upwards like a pink tutu, hence the alternative name Ballerina. I found more than ten species of Waxcap growing in the same pasture, including three other scarce species.”
