In any case, I notice these things now. I spotted it and snagged it in my net and was quite taken by surprise by the torrent of little black seeds that poured out from the bottom when I snapped it off!

What a marvellous little specimen he is! A cavernous colonnade, topped by a fragile regal vanilla latte crown.
Such a thing of beauty. I'm only sorry I didn't spot him earlier.
