Re: Another Russula...

For Kibby's key, we need spore print (pure white, creamy or beige), taste and extent of peeling of cap. Also any smell. The presence of dermatocystidia also is part of the key but I assume you dont have a microscope / stains / technical knowledge to do this at present so we can try without that part...

Re: field mushroom

I'm going to leave this post here as a warning to those who are only interested in fungi for eating. Most of us in this website are wildlife enthusiasts of one sort or another. When you ask for an ID, we give an answer based on a reasonable amount of certainty suitable for recording a biological rec...

A. citrina has an aroma of raw potatoes. Its quite distinctive. Its also not toxic :)

Anyone can upload a photo, mis-identify it and then the world thinks their image is correct. Better to get a good guidebook. We have a list of good books and more reputable online r...
