Late spring/early summer fungus


This fungus will have been given a name but I haven't heard it. I guess the slimy coat is a defense against dehydration and perhaps other things but I've not read anything that talks about why some fungi have a slippery surface - there could be all manner of qualities to the glistening coat that have never been described and I bet there are. In any case, it's a wee beauty!
