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?

Rust on blade of grass

I found this rust (presumably Puccinia ) on a blade of grass (species unknown) this afternoon. Can it be taken any further? The urediniospores (I think that's what they are...) were varied in size, but the largest seemed to be around 20x25µ. Is it possible to take further? Possibly striiformis ? 256...
