Re: Agaric parasiting a pyrenomycete?

Thanks Andreas. Good to see you.
I thought chlamydospores of agarics could be septate (but maybe not brown..)

Re: Waxcaps?

If you're getting a microscope I would start with buying Funga Nordica. Another out of print book; always expensive and now you may have to pay more for one. Don't have a copy myself but it should have a good key and certainly covers most of the Agarics, Boletes etc. you are likely to find. It's wo...

Re: Bonnet sp. on anthill

I don't have details for that species. There is only one UK record for it, compared to 339 for C.scabella and so is not considered to be a UK species. According to Wikipedia, there are about 65 Crinipellis species worldwide. You could dry a couple of fruit-bodies in case someone would be prepared to...

Re: Bonnet sp. on anthill

Check Crinipellis scabella - the hairy or scaly cap is quite distinctive. Was it growing on soil or on the twigs?

*Just look at how many beginners' first/early posts tend to be Armillaria spp.
A lot of "Cortinarius" turn out out be an Armillaria sp. I've done it myself in the past.

Re: Unknown white/brown Fungi with craters

Welcome to UK Fungi and Happy New Year! Is your name Joe? Fungi are quite hard to to identify even when in good condition. The "craters" are slug holes. Sadly these are in too poor condition to identify. It's best to walk past and ignore dilapidated specimens like this. For future reference, photos ...

Re: Frosty finds

I would suggest Collins Complete (not!) Guide to British Mushrooms and Toadstools Sterry and Hughes 2009. Out of print but 2nd hand copies usually available via Amazon etc. Glossy pages with photos and small enough to carry in the field I keep seeing this myth about it being out of print. It's avai...

Re: Cobalt Crust Terana caerula

Back in the days of dial-up, a 500k image took all night to download. You newcomers to the internet are spoiled by fibre! A real world scenario is ordering a train full of wine, because you want one glass. I'll try again with the plugin soon. But I'll need to alter my custom code so both the tile vi...

Agaric parasiting a pyrenomycete?

Puzzled by this one. Reminds me of an Asterophora sp and looks like it is growing in association with a pyrenomycete (on a hardwood log) - stem is distinctly floccose. The scalp has some unusual spores with two oil droplets, whether they are from the agaric or the host I don't know. This is in Pembr...
