Re: Fungi Id again :)

Ganoderma species are also rock hard, which is a useful character to distinguish from Dryads Saddle which is relatively soft.

Re: Fungi on Scottish West Coast

Nothing you can do, Im afraid. A fungicide would also kill beneficial fungi that trees use to prosper by helping them absorb water and minerals and even defend the tree against the harmful ones. It would kill lichens too and cause damage to invertebrates intestines that rely on fungi for digestion. ...

Re: Fungi on Scottish West Coast

I need to amend my first answer. These are actually honey fungus. The only way to get rid of it would be to remove all the trees and any woody shrubs. Assuming you dont want to do that, cross your fingers that some trees and shrubs survive. The fungus will kill the weaker ones. Removing the fruit bo...

Re: Fungi on Scottish West Coast

Why do you want to destroy them? They are doing their job of breaking down old decaying wood. Just like beetles and woodlice.
If their presence offends you that much, remove the wood. The main part of the fungus is in the wood, so removing the fruits wont kill it.

Re: suillus ? Larch or slipper jack?

Agree with Steve. Larch bolete and slippery jacks have rings, and are usually really sticky, unless there has been prolonged dry weather.

Re: What are these?

The last one is parrot Waxcap, usually found on unfertilised grassland. Many mycologists are now worried about the state of the waxcaps as they appear to be declining. Another one looks like one of the Pinkgills (Entoloma species), also found in the same habitat. Microscopy needed to be sure of spec...
