Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

Hello,

by the way, I have never heard of Phellinus pomaceus/tuberculosus growing other than on Prunus spinosa or Prunus domestica agg. - never on an apple tree. Whereas Inonotus hispidus is very common on Malus (besides may be Fraxinus as main host).

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

Hell eltio, forums exists for the purpose of such discussions, no? That's what makes them valuable in my opinion. If you have a look at the last picture, you will notice that the fungus has quite strigose pileus surface. On all other pcitures you can'tz see that, but I think that it is due to the fo...

Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

Hello Chris, no, in my opinion the picture is correctly Phellinus pomaceus/tuberculosus. The fungus in the thread here is a soft fleshed fungus with greyish-silvery pores, as can be seen on the last two pictures. So in my opinion an Inonotus species. Also the cap colour s more vivid rusty orange in ...

Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

Hello, no, this is Inonotus hispidus, and it is a quite strong parasitic fungus. I don't think that your tree can be preserved. How long it will withstand the fungus attack is hard to tell. Removing the fruitbody will not harm the fungus in the tree in any way. The mycelium will be spred in the stem...

Re: Help with identification please.

Hello, this should be Megacollybia/Oudemansiella/Clitocybula/Collybia platyphylla. If the spore characters fit, what I can't check at the moment in my holidays in Croatia :-) The gill colour is due to dryness and overmaturity, but the spores are colourless or at most yellowish, not a brown-spored fu...

Re: Yellowish Basidio

Hello, on first glance it seems to me that it could be Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare), but to be certain I would need a closer look at the gill colour. If the gills are only whitish to cream coloured, then it might be a species of Gymnopus. Cystoderma is never that smooth on the cap neither th...

Re: Unidentified fungi Sheffield

Hello,

no, definitely not the same!

I even doubt that your finding shows a fungus at all.
If it is really not building foam, then may be it is something like the slime flux on Clematis.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Is this fungi?

Hello, I think that are rather Peziza species, e.g. P. vesiculosa or P. granulosa. Tarzetta usually do not grow that clustered and are thinner and more regular in shape. But all these fungi are not poisonous, so for the purpose of the original posting it is of no meaning which one it is in the end ....

Re: Polyporus

Hello, to me it seems more likely to be Polyporus tuberaster, but it is not sure to tell just from the foto in my opinion. If you have the fruitbody still fresh, you can squash a piece of it between your fingers and smell: Polyporus squamosus has an intense odor like freshly cut cucumbers or "mealy"...
