Re: Is this Heterobasidium annosum?

Hello,

in my opinion yes, and if it was a pine tree than it should be Heterobasidium annosum ss. str.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Tremella mesenterica?

Hello, I think the black remnants are - at least some of them - Nemania serpens or something similar, say a Pyrenomycete. It looks mor elike Tremelle mesenterica to me, as T. aurantia is bigger, less gelatinous and more orange tinged than yellow. I have always seen fruitbodies of a Stereum species t...

Re: Colourful Entoloma

Hello, if you have dried and kept the fuitbody, there is a chance to determine it (one day), especially as you have a foto of it for the colours and shape. A better sight of the cap (striate, finely squamulose, ...) would have been important may be. But be warned, as Roy says, the examination of Ent...

Re: Lots of brown 'funnels' on grassland

Hello Roy, I have found cyathiformis in grass land habitat only when there is a certain amount of distrubance or even nutrient in it. P. obbata I know only from unimproved, ?always? grazed gassland, together with Hygrocybe calciphila, Cuphophyllus niveus, Lepista saeva and similar species. So, for m...

Re: Oyster Mushroom?

Hello Colin, oh, thank you for veryfing the amyloid spores! So I think you are very correct that these are old and weathered fruitbodies of Panellus/Sarcomyxa serotina/us. I wouldn't have recognized, but the spores tell it and if one looks at the pictures from that point of view ... with those short...

Re: Oyster Mushroom?

Hello, quite strange. I don't know of agarics having such tiny spores in that shape, expect may be Panellus (which then should be amyloid). If you like you can send me a small piece of a cap or a part of the sporeprint or whatevver you have left of the fungus. If so, I'd mail you my adress as PM. be...

Re: Oyster Mushroom?

Hello, my first idea is - wrong calibration. Spore in the size of 4-5 x 1,5 µm, like e.g. some polypores have, are not that easy visible, and Though I have no idea of what magnification you use and which equipement you have, I yet wonder that such tiny spores are so well presented in a Melzers prepa...

Re: Lots of brown 'funnels' on grassland

Hello,

I would name it Pseudoclitocybe obbata, especially due to the ecology.

best regards,

Re: Another unidentified polypore

Hello,

as you say, the underside is smooth. Therefore it isn't a polypore of course, but a corticioid fungus. This is Stereum hirsutum.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Blueing Bracket Postia subcaesia?

Hello Lee, when you only take the genus Postia into account, than the blue colours are diagnostic for the group caesia-subcaesia-alni. But blueish colours may occure in several polypores, e.g. in Ischnoderma also etc. Blue zones are highly characteristic for turkey-tail, though it also may have zone...
