Re: Another Russula...

Hello, this such a typical Russula vesca that you can spare the time for microscoping. If you nevertheless want to prove the determination microscopically, it is enough to look for the so-called Crins in the cap surface. These are slightly thickwalled, pointed, seta-like "needles". You need to do th...

Re: large Lepiota from Ainsdale

Hello,

in my opinion this is Lepiota (Echinoderma) aspera.

The cuticule is typical for Echinoderma spp., and the spore size as well as the very crowded gills suit perfect for L. aspera.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Fungus on Pine Cone

Hello Deborah, the atlantic climate may well be suitable for Mycena seynii, but as well for Mycena rubromarginata. You would need identification skills for the genus Mycena to (microscopically) separate the two species - the pine species will not help you in identifying the Mycena unfortunately .......

Re: Help with three red and yellow boletes

Hello, I think you are correct with Hortiboletus rubellus or H. engelii (I cant separate these two realy ...) for the last one and also for the first one. You can check the very stem base if they contain small orange dots in the flesh, which is a character for both species and which separate them fr...

Re: mushroom ID please

Hello, I don't think it is A. augustus. this species is even more scaly, grows in woodland, smells distinctly like almonds, is yellowing distictly when bruised and has a different habit throughout (bigger, with flater cap ...) I don't know which species. Agaricus is very difficult to determine. You ...

Re: Fungus on Pine Cone

Hello,

it is a pine cone. But the fungus is not a Strobilurus, but a Mycena (conical cap, stipe colour).
It should be Mycena rubromarginata, or if you are in a submediterranean climate it might well be M. seynii.

best regards, Andreas

Re: mushroom ID please

Hello,

this is an Agaricus species, but I can't tell which one.
It is important to have the stem base, to determine species and differenciate between the Xanthodermatei group and other groups.

Re: Rugosomyces ionides / Violet Domecap ???

Hello,

I think it is C. ionides, as it is quite bis for carnea and the ecology doesn't fit. When you take out the strong red miscolouration of the foto, the colour will be quite typical.

best regards,
Andreas
