Re: Possible Laccaria

Hello, the stipe wasn't make me hesitate, but the gill attachement is not as broad as usual and the cap covering is also a bit strange. The last picture shows the usual more or less smooth and hygrophaneous cap surface better, so my doubts are gone - taken that all fotos show the same species .... w...

Re: Possible Laccaria

Hello Bob, this is no wonder, as Tubaria romagnesiana belongs to the badly circumscribed complex of Tubaria furfuracea, where there are different opinions on how many species are there and how to differenciate between them. Morphological approaches vary from one to (at least) four species. I have no...

Re: Possible Laccaria

Hello,

the last picture shows clearly a Tubaria in my opinion. The first two are a bit unusual, as Tbaria have usually a floccose veil and not such a furfuraceous stucture. Nevertheless I think it are Tubaria and may be that is what some people call Tubaria romagnesiana.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Velvet Shank ?

Hello, may be the last fotos - the "tubes" - show the stipe of a Polyporus species, or may degenerated fruitbodies of it. Polyporus varius (= leptocephalus) comes to my mind, without being able to declare why .... Another idea would be, wether this is a steroid Coriciaceae - Stereum rugosum for exam...

Re: Little agaric in grass and moss

Hello, I'm same opinion as Chris :lol: :lol: - okay, as Chris Johnson I meant The Galerina vittiformis group is the most similar to Conocybe, as they have a pubescent stipe like those and unlike most other Galerina species. The shape of cystidia and the size of spores suggest the vittiformis group. ...

Re: Bonnet fungus

Hello Bob, yes, usually not possible to determine on species level without microscopy. Depending on the experience one has there are a minor number of species which can be recognized in the field. Yours doesn't belong to these, though an exper will surely narrow it down to maybe a handful of possibl...

this is a Psathyrella species ("Brittlestem". The dark gills indicate dark brown spore colour, whereas Bonnets have white spore colour.

Re: Possible Mazegill Gloeophyllum

Hello,

yes, definitely Gloeophyllum sepiarium.
It is causing a severe brown rot and when you see the fruitbodies you can already start to look for a substitute for your fence or whatever, as the attacked timber will break into pieces soon.

Re: Baffled!

Hello,

this is typical Lepista sordida.

the pictures in NO and SW show that the basidia are more than 2-spored (means 4-spored).

Re: Are these Chaetocalathus craterellus?

Hello,

this one needs microscopy. Most likely a crepidotus species, possibly Clitopilus hobsonii. I don't think that there are alternatives to this two possibilities.

Re: Unidentified fungus - ID Request

Hello, more likely an Arrhenia species. We have Arrhenia rickenii very often in open, sheep-grazed grassland on calcareous soil in Istria (Croatia). Btw.: There are Entoloma species which look similar to this and have such decurrent gills. So without microscopy I wouldn't bet that it is not an Entol...
