Red-green or Autumn Green?

 A photo from Nov 2019 is puzzling me. This seems to have some characteristics of both Red-green and Autumn Green Carpet. Which have I got, please? Found near Chesham, Bucks.

Many thanks, David


  1. Hello David,

    That's the very common Red-green Carpet. Your specimen seems fairly typical but sometimes they are completely lacking in "red" (more especially the females, it seems to me). Autumn Green Carpet is a rarity in Bucks (none since 2014, 16 records in total and almost all without any supporting evidence) so we'd need to see the specimen if it was claimed.

  2. Thanks, Dave - it was a forlorn hope!!
