Cortinarius?

Hi

I found this at Ashburnham Woods in East Sussex, under Beech. The flesh is distinctly violet and there is a tinge of violet on the stipe and cap. The cap is about 5 cm diameter. Sorry, no spores.

Re: Cortinarius ID?

We found some we thought might be Cortinarius torvus at Ashburnham Woods, East Sussex on 21 August, under Beech. Bulbous, violaceous stipe and violet flesh. Cap light brown with violet tones and a distinctive white ring around the edge.

Re: "False" False Chanterelle?

Thanks Mike

The (few) Tawny Funnels we have seen have always been paler than these, so we hadn't thought of it as a possibility - but we are happy to accept your experience.

Regards
Jim

"False" False Chanterelle?

I found these yesterday on the root of a live gorse bush at Seaford Head, East Sussex (chalk grassland with scattered gorse, no conifers or Birch in the vicinity). Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca seemed a possibility, but the habitat is wrong and the cap seems too dark (I would describe it as chestnut). S...

Re: Yellowish Inocybe?

Many thanks Adam - yes L. lacrymabunda is a possibility. I didn't see any weeping on the gills, but the weather had been dry. Also, the stipe seemed very bulbous. However, as you say, the gills are very dark for either Cortinarius or Inocybe. Apologies, I don't have a spore print. Best wishes, Jim

Yellowish Inocybe?

Hello

Found at Ashburnham Woods (East Sussex - mixed deciduous). Up to 8cm diameter. I noted the colour of the cap as "ginger" but the photos are distinctly yellowish. The gills are adnate and velvety, very dark brown with a white edge. The stipe is bulbous and paler than the cap.

Thelophora?

Hi

We this amongst moss on an old Beech trunk at Nyman's Gardens, Sussex. Not a very good photo, but the cropped version shows fine, spiky branches. We thought it might be Thelephora but are not aware of any species which is bright yellow - could it be parasitised by something else?

2 new finds from Clydach Gorge

I would be grateful for help with identifying two specimens found at Clydach Gorge, near Abergavenny two weeks ago. The first was growing in thick, chalk grassland. It has a cap about 1 cm and is about 3 cm tall. To be honest, we are not sure whether the orange part really is the stipe or whether it...

Found at Chailey Common, West Sussex today, on weathered dung from conservation ponies. The caps were about 1 cm diameter. Grateful for any views, thanks.

Re: Toothed fungus

Many thanks

We have gone back to check, found older specimens and completely agree. No conifers in the vicinity.

Best wishes
