Re: Russula identification - help please

Hello, Chris has perectly right, when he states that Russula is usually not to identify macroscopically by foto. But with some expercience some species can nevertheless be named with a high certainty (though not an absolute certainty ...) In your case I would bet a lot on Russula vesca, as the gener...

Re: Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

Hello, the fruiting periode of Hymenoscyphus albidus is decidedly earlier, May to June, whereas the pathogenic H. fraxineus fruits July to August. So I would be very astonished if this would not turn out to be H. fraxineus. In Germany I have not seen H. albidus anymore since at least five years. bes...

Re: Small ones in my lawn - are they dangerous to small children?

Hello, there are two different species on the foto: The slightly bigger, brown one, that you depictured also as single fruitbody: This is very likely Panaolus foeniseii.

Re: Pluteus?

Hello,

it is a Pluteus from the cervinus-group.

If you do a preparation of the gill, you will se the typical three-hooked cystidia, which only some Pluteus species do have!

best regards,
Andreas

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
