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...

Question about this Clavulinopsis umbrinella (Beige Coral)

I've identified this coral as Beige Coral Clavulinopsis umbrinella . There were a few close together on unimproved/semi-improved grassland in Surrey in short moss-rich grass. The branches divide dichotomously (most often four times) from a thicker base and terminate with two blunt, sometimes pinkish...

Hi Roy, Thanks, I can see the similarities now, especially the stem colour and shape.

Re: Waxcaps?

Hi Adam, Many thanks. I've had look at Mycokey and it looks really interesting and I am contemplating paying for the full version to see how I get on.

Re: Waxcaps?

Hi Roy and Chris, Thank you so much for some really superb advice and great encouragement! I've actually copied both of your posts into my notes because you've provided some really useful information that I'll want to refer to such as the keys and book titles (thanks Roy), and I'll be back on my loc...

Another unidentified polypore

Another one I can't anywhere with! Initially I thought this might be Jelly Rot Fungus (Phlebia tremellosa), but the underside looks smooth (sorry for the poor images - it was getting dark at the time and the camera was struggling) and after looking in more detail I can see this looks quite different...
