Re: Question about this Clavulinopsis umbrinella (Beige Coral)

Hi Lee, I suspect the lack of answers/suggestions so far, is because people aren't sure what you've got either. :lol: I've seen both species you mention a few times, but I wouldn't say that I'm overly familiar with either of them. As you will appreciate, and as with many other types of fungi, corals...

Lots of brown 'funnels' on grassland

I've just tried to reply to a post about 'brown funnels' on grassland. A message came up that the post "doesn't exist" (then the post disappeared!). It was a first post from some one. . . . . Hi Roy, Strange that you saw that post at all, as when I logged in just now, it was still awaiting approval...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

According to the mountain weather forecast, Sunday 7th January was to be a sunny day in the Lake District, with moderate winds. So, as there was a good coverage of snow on the high fells, I decided that my first walk for 2018 would be a trip to Glenridding, to revisit (yet again!), one of my favouri...

Re: Myxomycete of the Day

2018-01-02-19.43.39 ZS stereo_000crop_unsharp21000.jpg Elaeomyxa cerifera, cross-eyed stereo pair. That's one helluva photo, John. Pin sharp from front to back and without a hint of digital artefacts! One of the images on its own would have been absolutely superb, but having a "3D" stereo pair take...

Re: Cobalt Crust Terana caerula

Hi Mark, Firstly, (and just for clarity for others who might read this), we aren't only discussing making an image physically smaller or larger - i.e altering its "pixel dimensions". Sometimes, doing just that might be enough to reduce it down to within UK Fungi's maximum allowed file-size. (i.e.: -...

Re: Cobalt Crust Terana caerula

Hi Mark, Unfortunately the maximum image file-size had to be dropped back down. Originally, the maximum file-size for uploaded image attachments was 400Kb. Then, on October 23rd 2017, Adam increased the size massively, to 6MB, as per this post, which went onto the forum at 5:15pm: - http://www.fungi...

Re: Unknown jelly fungus

Hi Adam, Your first photo looks like the basal part of a conidiophore. Your photo immediately above, looks like a more complete conidiophore. See:- http://guiahongosnavarra1garciabona.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Ascocoryne%20sarcoides It's in Spanish language, but you might get the gist of what the ...

Re: Butter Cap Rhodocollybia butyracea?

. . . . I couldn't open the link to the database records . . . Hi Lee, Apologies for that, I didn't check the link. - It seems that it doesn't like my copying and pasting of the URL for a single page. Hopefully this link will work for you, (I've tried it and it does on my machine). It links to the ...

Re: Butter Cap Rhodocollybia butyracea?

Whilst by far the majority of British R. butyracea records are from woodland, there are quite a few from grassland too. This is the last page (page 92 of 92) of R. butyracea records from FRDBI, and you will see that a few of the records on just this one page indicate the habitat as being grassland: ...

Re: Unknown Purple Mushroom Found In Garden

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. You don't say whether it was found very recently, or what exactly it was growing on. (As you mention the garden, I'm assuming soil, rather than wood as substrate?). If it's a fairly recent find, my first thoughts would be something like Wood Blewit - Lepista nuda , but b...
