Re: Antrodia albida?

Thanks Andreas. Is A. macra the only other species it could be? If not an Antrodia then what else might it be do you think?
Cheers

Antrodia albida?

Is this Antrodia albida? Are there similar species that it can be confused with?

White to cream colour, resupinate, pores c. 1mm across and range from angular to rounded (pore tubes exposed on patches growing vertically). On dead willow in Surrey.

A beautiful species whatever it is. Many thanks.

Re: Possible Hare'sfoot Inkcaps (Coprinopsis lagopus)?

Hi all,

Many thanks for your feedback. I didn't take the photos and so this is the only pic I have. I knew an ID was highly unlikely but I have taken on board your comments about aging and species suggestions.

Many thanks,
Lee

Possible Hare'sfoot Inkcaps (Coprinopsis lagopus)?

I think these are Young Hare'sfoot Inkcaps (Coprinopsis lagopus), perhaps? Any advice much appreciated.

I did not take the photo and have no other information other than it was taken on grassland in Surrey.

Re: Type of mazegill?

Hi Andreas,

Sorry for the late reply. I overlooked the notification email of your response.

Many thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately the photos were taken a few years ago but I think the host tree was Crack Willow Salix fragilis.

Best wishes,
Lee

Re: Tremella mesenterica?

Hi Andreas,

Many thanks for your comments, this is great. I will be out looking for some more tomorrow so I'll try and photograph the host species a bit better next time.

Best wishes,
Lee

Tremella mesenterica?

Tremella mesenterica (Yellow Brain) or Tremella auriantia?

I think the black areas indicated by the red arrows are remants of a Peniophora fungus which would make this T. Mesenterica I believe?

With T. auriantia is there always fruitbodies of Stereum hirsutum visible?

Re: Question about this Clavulinopsis umbrinella (Beige Coral)

Hi Chris,

Is this something you would able to do for me? I didn't collect a sample because I don't yet have a microscope, but I visited the site last weekend there was still some fruiting so I could dry a sample and post to you.

Many thanks,
Lee

Re: Question about this Clavulinopsis umbrinella (Beige Coral)

Hi Mike, Many thanks for a very informative reply. Though I totally agree with you about variation. I found quite a few typically orange-yellow C. corniculata all close by at the same site and none of these had an pale or beige branches at all. The few trustworthy sites I've looked at (e.g. First Na...
