I’d got the impression that the differing words for butterfly was a regional thing - if there’s a technical difference that would be very helpful to know!
From the heading, I take it that these are all daytime flyers…


#4016

I think you can use them both in Swansea.

This post is in the Welsh Speaking Practice thread, but there’s a suggestion to start a photography discussion group, and as many of you are keen photographers, I thought you might be interested.

Could this be a Parasol Mushroom, Macrolepiota sp?
Mixed woodland, deciduous and pines. Soil probably sandy. The bottom of the stem was swollen but I didn’t see any sign of a volva.
Sorry, couldn’t find a Welsh name.

And this looks like another Madarch mewndro but older, scruffier, and with a lot of staining on the gills.

@ramblingjohn, I know I’ve seen it before but memory fails me :slightly_frowning_face:

By pure coincidence these are growing on my front lawn … wondering whether to fry them up for dinner. You there @ramblingjohn? :grinning:

Castanea sativa

Heddiw - Today.


Ffwng melog - Honey fungus.
In response to eating them , the best i can find is (taste strong, can be eaten if cooked)
As with many fungus i suspect edibility may vary depending on which substrate
(in this case wood, (their mycelia will be feeding on wood even when they appear in
grass)), they consume, (some woods are themselves poisonous).


Gloyn byw estron arall - another exotic species (Blue morpho).


Pengwin - penguin (jackass pengwin from south Africa).

Cheers J.P.
