For those who are unsure what the P stands for, the full name is Phallus hadriani :D

Welcome to Uk Fungi, General !
Did you not spot my Phallus at the end of the previous paragraph? :roll:
Clearly not, but now I have! :roll:
Anyway, it's now a bit more obvious

Re: Mycenoid on dead plant by Yew stump

Thanks Roy.
I have a cold this week, and my sense of smell varies a lot depending on my sinuses!
The outline of the spores is smooth, just looked like a Russula type network, perhaps lipid formation inside the spore?

Mycenoid on dead plant by Yew stump

This was in a very old churchyard 1/2 mile from the sea growing on some unknown dead plant next to a Yew stump. Spores were yellow in Melzers but look like they have some dark ornamentation, like a Russula. This showed in water too. I think the (very thin) spore mass on a slide went black in Melzers...

Re: Conocybe sp?

Ok thanks both. The ornamentation is quite fine on that stacked image. I can see how we missed it! Nice job there with the plate, Chris! :D

Re: Conocybe sp?

Can G.clavata have smooth spores? [EDIT - watch this space, I think these images were taken using x40 objective. ]

Re: Conocybe sp?

Thanks Roy. I was assured there was a germ pore (although I couldn't see one!) :)
