Re: Amanita Porphyria?

Hello, I agree with Roy on that the cap colour is to grey for A. porphyrea. Moreover, the ring of A. porphyrea is always coloured (at least underside) and very weak in structure so that it is soon completely adhearing to the stipe - such a stable white ring is typical for A. excelsa bvut would not a...

Re: Bolete Help

Hello,

I think its rather Boletus reticulatus thatn B. edulis, due to the cap structure.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Small bolete growing under willow / hawthorne

Hello Adam, a Xerocomellus in all cases, but which one? If it is really associated with willow, that would be possibly an interesting collection. Otherwise I would have said "faded chryenteron". The stipe base seems not to have orange dots in the flesh, so X. engelii is ruled out (what would be the ...

Re: Which species of earthball (scleroderma) is this?

Hello,

due to the thin "flesh" between the spore mass and the outer skin, and the non-areolate surface, I suspect this to be Scleroderma bovista.

Re: ID for a Cortinarius ???

Hello, difficult to say something to this. It would be interesting to see how the veil on the cap looks like when the cap is a bit dryer: Are there distict scales or is the veil +/- fibrillous? Also it would be necessary to see wether the gills had a violet colour (it looks like) - and we need the s...

Re: Monotropa hypopitys

Hello, when associated with beech, it is Monotropa hypophegea / hypopytis ssp. hypophegea. The association with Tricholoma cingulatum must be a quite rare and exceptional case (only in costal dunes and in alpine areas) - usually you find Monotropas in association with Tricholoma mycorrhiza at Picea ...

Re: Small Club-like Fungus growing on Polyporous badius

Hello,

first, this is not Polyporus badius, but Polyporus varius.
The small fruitbodies are very young specimens of the same species, young Polyporus varius

best regards,

Re: Mixed woodland ID confirmations

Hello, I have to admit that it is not easy to determine fungi by foto, especially when they are not a very good qualtiy. The colours are often very important, and therefore overexposed fotos or fotos with artifical light are usually undeterminable. So is your no. 3, though I think it might be Bjerka...

Re: Can anyone help identify this?

Hello,

I think this is Hygrocybe conica/nigrescens, a blackening waxcap - sorry Mal.
