Re: Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

Thanks for your comments.
Looking at info about Picea abies I see that it's a widely planted forestry tree and doesn't mind acid soil nor damp ground - both of which feature heavily here - And yet another memo to me get to grips with evergreen/conifer identification.

Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

Hello. I found these today - growing in very damp ground on the bank of a stream which regularly floods. Rather shady amongst a variety of scrub/shrubs as well as some kind of conifer which I couldn't identify. It's a managed mixed forest plantation. At first I thought Lactarius deliciosus - which I...

Agaricus help please

These are growing on compost at the bottom of my garden. I'm pretty sure they are in the Agaricus family (?) I noted the immediate yellowing at the base, but the cap markings and lack of any distinctive smell didn't suggest the Yellow Stainer. The ring is very chunky and not at all fragile. I'm in C...

Another Russula...

Hello. Asking for ID help for another Russula. (Kibby's book is on my wish list).
Found this today after much needed rain. Highest point of badly drained meadow. Under a solitary oak. Thanks for any replies.

Re: Fungus on Pine Cone

Thank you both. Now I need to hone my identification skills to properly identify the tree the pine cone fell from! I am in Central Brittany, France - not sure if that's sub mediterranean ? :D

Fungus on Pine Cone

I think this counts as a miscellaneous substrate? Found yesterday and I have no idea what it is. Thanks for any help.

Re: Bolete identification help

Thank you both. They were not all in the same place - but in the same locality. Next time I will take an example and show the pores and slice them!

Re: blue /violet fungus found

Hello Hilary. Whilst you're waiting for someone more knowledgeable than me to come along and confirm this, you might want to look up Laccaria amethystina - Amethyst Deceiver. They are beautiful aren't they?

Bolete identification help

Hello. My immediate thought is Bitter Beech Bolete (Caloboletus calopus). Found in mixed woodland - beech, oak and conifers. Acid soil. Central Brittany. Thanks for any help, contradiction or confirmation. Sorry that the images are sideways!

Hello. My first post on this forum. Glad to have found you! I have just picked these Russulas. Growing around a mature oak tree. The soil is acid and sometimes poorly drained - although this particular spot is drier than most of the surrounding area. Over years I normally collect the Miller and Penn...
