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 ...

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...

Pileipellis a trichoderm. Which is it or do you think its something else? PA210042.JPG PA210043.JPG LB...

I'm cheating as there are 2 here, 3 if you include the host, but they are related.

Re: Beige/grey woodland mushrooms. Pale yellow gills. Blewits?

Welcome to UK Fungi :)

Im amazed Mal can tell that from the photos (but I don't dispute it) Never use flash with fungi unless you are a pro or semi-pro because it gives poor colour, in this case it makes them look yellow. Always use natural light or white light.

Mycena for ID please

Struggling with this Mycena. L value is about 30. Strongly amyloid spores. About 3cm diameter cap. I thought it had a slight radish smell, my wife thought it had a "horrible" smell. Growing in leaf litter along a disused railway line with broad-leaved trees. I'm torn between M.polygramma and M.aetit...
