Hi all
I have been finding a lot of, what I thought was boletinus cavipes but a friend of mine thought the stem looked too slender. Any second opinions??
Many thanks in advance

Re: Mushroom ID please.. worried for our dog

A lovely display of a Mycena (Bonnet) species. No need to worry about the dog, they are not significantly poisonous. My dog has been on 100s of forays in woods covered in fungi and always been fine. Dogs rarely eat fungi but they sniff everything.

Re: ID please-various woodland mushrooms

First one is definitely a Lactarius. To get further, you need to taste the milk and the flesh, note the milk colour and watch for colour change on drying. It might be orange and go darker or go a bit greenish. I would like to suggest not picking so many specimens but leave them behind for others to ...

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 ...
