Microglossum?

Fabulous - get it on ASCOfrance . . . .
Thanks Chris - I would have thought ASCOfrance would have ample of this species but clearly not. I will take some fresh images.
Here's one for today - Podospora conica.

Re: Little agaric in grass and moss

Hi Adam Yes, Galerina. I wouldn't rule out G. vittiformis on spore ornamentation; they range from mottled to verrucose. There is also quite a size range as they can be 2-spored or 4-spored and occasionally mixed. There used to be many varieties and forms of this species which have now been synonymis...

Re: Possible Leratiomyces ceres?

Hi Annie

Summer is not the best time for fungi, especially on Harris which is rugged and almost devoid of trees.

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.
