Re: Unknown

Hi Mike I've had a closer look at the prime image and there are many with bifurcated tips, so Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa fits very well. There was a larger area of it alongside one of the tracks. It is not an area I get to very often and, with other interests, I have decided not to pursue myxos. Hence,...

I couldn't resist photographing this even though I know little about them. If someone could provide a name or genus, that will be a bonus.

I see the "The Genus tricholoma in Britain" by Geoffrey Kibby has been re-listed as a 2nd edition (2017) with the original being published in 2012.
Hi Adam

Did you ever get an answer to this? I would be interested to know too.

Cheers, Chris

Re: Stropharia caerulea?

Hi Nick I see what you are referring to but the spore insn't within the cystidium but behind it. As you change focus from the surface of the cystidium through to the rear the spore becomes more apparent. Even with coloured cells such as this, there is an amazing ability of the optic to see right thr...

Re: Stropharia caerulea?

Of the three blue Stropharia , this would seem the most likely based on your data. It has slightly smaller spores than the others which fit your measuremnets better. Not sure what you mean by 'excreting cheilocystidium' ? This group have cheilochysocystidia with apical projections (mucronate), and y...

Re: Small Brown Fungus

Hello Mike

Many thanks for looking into references.

I am a member of the BMS and do have electronic access, which I came to latterly.

Much appreciate your help.
