Re: Roy Betts

Re: Any idea what Fungi this is

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. it is usually impossible to give a confident species identification from a single "top view" photograph, as many of the required characteristics cannot be seen - and particularly so when no size details are provided - such as height of stems, width of caps, etc. etc. See...

Hi Findo, and welcome to UK Fungi.

It is the slime mould (myxomycete) Reticularia lycoperdon . (It won't harm your tree). It i...

Re: How to upload & add images to your posts (Basic Method).

UPDATE - July 20th 2018 Looks like Adam has been able to resolve the multiple image upload problem described immediately above, so people should be able to upload images as they always have done. (And as described in Original post, above). I will re-lock this topic, but will leave it in-situ, just ...

Re: Tiny white balls on stalks on b-l wood bark

Many thanks again Chris. This is very helpful and encouraging. And thank you, too for the links you have sent me to my own email address.

Re: Help with identification please.

Hi Mike, Unfortunately only the one (spores) image is showing in your post. Either you didn't actually upload other photos? - or you have fallen foul of the "bug" which is causing problems when uploading multiple images to the forum.
