Re: Two different milk caps under birch

Most importantly colour change of the milk. This can happen quickly or can take a few hours. A cotton hanky is suggested by most people but Versterholt et all "The Genus Lactarius" let it dry on the gills. The most common change is to yellow, but orange, green and others are possible. The colour is ...

Re: Inocybe

Inocybe in general require extensive microscopy. Having said that, I wouldn't even assume it was Inocybe without checking spores and for the presence of a veil on the stem, it might be a Cortinarius. You really need to provide more info on your finds. Eg you say deciduous trees... can you not narrow...

Re: Little brown job

Thanks Roy. It is distinctly two-tone. The fruit-body size is a little small but I've tried alternate pathways, eg if I missed a smell, but they don't fit at all, so I'm fairly confident I have a match now, especially following your comments. :) I'm really confident there were NO caulocystidia, I ex...

Re: Can I have help identifiying these mushrooms?

It's nice to be able to search the site based on image etc, and also there is a certain risk with unknown links posted by new members of the site.

Welcome! I hope to see your images.

Re: Dune mushroom ID

Looks a good match for P.ammophila The extreme environment produces quite a variation in appearance. It doesn't look like a ring to me, but damage from wind/salt/sand etc. Seeing some other examples would sort this out. "One fruit-body is not a fungus", as Chris would say. Where was this taken?

Re: Little brown job

Hi Roy, Found another - no caulocystidia! and I have wall measurements of the ch.

No caulocystidia - but hairy towards base takes me t...
