Re: Identification please

Hi,

I think the photo has a bit of a colour cast to it, but would be reasonably confident that this is one of the Armillaria (Honey Fungus) species.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Identification help (again)

Hi,

Definitely no inkcap.

This looks like young fruitbodes of Hypholoma fasciculare - Sulphur Tuft.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Help with ID please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I'd say that your find has all the hallmarks of just emerging Phaeolepiota aurea, (Golden Bootleg).

They grow quite large and are quite spectacular at full size.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: field mushroom

. . . . . I cooked it up as i was pretty sure it wasn't the yellow staining mushroom. it smelt more inky than mushroomy though and it smelt a bit like chemicals. it also tasted of chemicals as well so i didn't eat much. . . . . You still cooked it and ate some when you didn't know exactly what spec...

Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Amanita phalloides - (Deathcap). Hadn't seen many of these at all, prior to this year. - Five or six at most. But finding them in profusion at the moment. (Counted 30+ yesterday). Images 1 & 2 five days ago, final image is the same pair as in image 2 but showing what they looked like yesterday. Reg...

Re: Fungi I.D please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. As it is producing coloured liquid droplets, it could be one of the Inonotus species. Knowing what species of tree it is growing from could narrow things down, as might a phot showing it front-on & from the underneath. It is very difficult to ID any fungi from a single t...

Re: Polyporus squamosus?

Hi, I'd say these are all P.squamosus . It often starts off looking similar to your first two shots, with what look like small compact caps on long (in comparison) stems. - Then the caps begin to expand and you get the normal P.squamosus sort of shape. The only other species it might be is P.tuberas...

Re: ID request Reddening Polypore

Hi Archie, Have you considered Abortiporus biennis - (Blushing Rosette) ? Your find seems to have the right sort of overall look about it. The pores / pore surface are about right, as are the spore sizes you give. (In Collins, cystidia are described as cylindrical, wavy with granular content). Regar...

Re: Myxomycete of the Day

Hi John, Absolutely superb! - Your myxo images really are extraordinarily good. In my opinion, even higher quality than those in "Les Myxomycetes" - and I thought those were the best. Don't know what equipment you are using, - I imagine I would need a lottery win to buy it!!! - but whatever it is an...

Re: How to encourage a wider interest in fungi

Hi Adam, I don't think we can do much more (or differently) than we are currently doing. The media interest in foraging over the last few years has obviously brought it to the attention of a great many people, and that's where my concerns lie. I've never foraged. I don't particularly condone it, but...
