Re: Mystery fungus, Nottinghamshire

Sorry for the bump... just checking there are no suggestions before I give it up as a bad job!

Mystery fungus, Nottinghamshire

Hi all, I'm a bit stuck where to start with this fungus. Found on a rotting log (species unknown) among moss. Only two fruit bodies, at opposite ends of log. Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire - parkland with a mix of mature native and non-native trees. Didn't take one for microscopy, so not really expec...

Lactarius tabidus?

Is this possibly Lactarius tabidus ? Several found under a young hornbeam, but beech and bird nearby. Milk tasteless (to me, but I'm a bit bunged up wit cold...), no odour (as previous...), milk white drying slightly yellower on tissue. lactarius1.jpg lactarius2.jpg lactarius3.jpg lactarius4.jpg

Pholiota gummosa?

Is this Pholiota gummosa? Single mushroom growing from a half-buried wooden step near the edge of a reservoir, S. Yorks. Cap not sticky, but debris stuck to cap suggests it was when younger.

Re: Two small orange fungi, Derbyshire

Thanks, Mike. A Calocera was on my radar as a possibility. What threw me with the "Bog Beacon" theory, other than a pinch of wishful thinking, was that the area was probably drier after some heavy downpours recently, and I wondered if it was older specimens that had gone a bit funky. But Calocera fo...

Two small orange fungi, Derbyshire

Two(?) fungi from a felled moorland conifer plantation in the Burbage Valley, Derbyshire yesterday. I was up there looking for Bog Beacon (known at the site), which I took the first one to be, but I'm not so sure now. The second I'm a bit stuck on... Other fungus in the same area was Scutellinia . F...

Pathogen on hawthorn leaf

I found this pathogen on a hawthorn near Sheffield at the weekend. Sadly I didn't have chance to do any microscopy. Diplocarpon mespili seems a likely contender, but are there any other pathogens like this on hawthorns that are possible?
