Re: Which Bonnet? And something else?

Which bonnet indeed. Someone might take a guess but generally you need to do the microscopy on small grey Mycenas unless they have "milk" in the stem, coloured gill edge or some other distinctive feature.
Mycena abramsii is one option but there are others.

Re: Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

I think Andreas was referring to the genus Abies (the Firs) - which are not native but are found in numerous plantations. There are only 44 records in the Uk for L.salmonicolor which makes it quite rare but you are in France anyway.
What about Lactarius quieticolor?

Re: Identification please?

Thanks Flaxton and adampembs. I'd be interested to know why you both ruled out the Amanita phalloides? Andreas has explained well, but for me a couple of other reasons. One, I have seen Honey fungi on 100s or even 1000s of occasions so I can recognise it instantly. Two, I have never seen Death cap,...

Re: Not so much the species, more…

The first cells (titled Cheilocystidia) are basidia. The second type are cystidia. Its easy to tell cheilocystidia from pleurocystidia. Lay a gill flat on a slide, cut off all but a small part of the gill edge, I do a trapezoid shape with the gill edge being the longest (see image). This helps if th...

Re: Oysterlings

In case, it hasn't sunk home, spore COLOUR is the starting point in any mushroom ID. :) A good guess can be made from gills, or better still, like this when the one on tops drops its spores on the one under it. A spore print done overnight at home is an option if you are unsure. What you must never ...

Re: What are these growing from rotten wood?

A guide to rotating images is here https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000990.htm No1 and 2 are both Mycena species (microscopy needed to get which species) No 3 looks like a Clitocybe species (funnel) No4 is an inkcap thats past its best No5 -probably either Kuehneromuces mutabilis or Galerina ma...

Re: Some species struggle to ID

Please read this. "Help us to help you" FAQ http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 In particular, good quality photos of all parts of the fungus should be shown. This means the gills, the stem, the stem base, and not just the top of the cap. Photos of spores prints should be made in a good w...
