Re: Need some help identifying these mushrooms

Boletus luridiformis or whatever is name is this week. Hello, this week it is Sutorius luridiformis and last week it was Neoboletus luridiformis. The week before it was Boletus luridiformis and even one more week back Boletus erythropus. The name change from erythropus to luridiformis has happened,...

Re: Clavarioid fungus on liverwort

Dear Sebastian, most probably a Clavaria species, but of the european species is confined to liverworth as far as I know. May be a Typhula, but they are usually not that slender. Are you certain, that it really contacts the liverworth or might it just grow through it from the soil beneath? Anyway, b...

Re: Unidentified fungus on dead deciduous tree

Hello Bob, nice little fungus, which is quite common but easily overlooked and usually in places where most people don't look for fungi. So your finding is in some ecological respects quite unusual. It is Crinipellis stipitaria or may be nowadays called Crinipellis scabellus. The radially hairy cap ...

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...

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.

best regards,
Andreas
