Re: A nice mushroom - but what is it?!

Hi,

Meadow Waxcap - Hygrocybe pratensis. (Or, as it's now known - Cuphophyllus pratensis).

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Dune mushroom ID

Hi, I'd be looking at Psathyrella ammophila - Dune Brittlestem. Your spore photo has the shape, colour, and size of spores for P.ammophila spot on. The only slight oddity I can see is the "peeling" of the stem, giving the impression, at first glance, of a ring, - but Psathyrella's don't have rings. ...

Re: Little brown job

Hi Adam,

Probably way off if your spore measurements are correct, but to me they have the looks of Tubaria furfuracea or Tubaria heimalis.

See: - http://www.bioimages.org.uk/html/Tubaria_furfuracea.htm

However spores averaging ~11µ long would be too big.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Rust for ID please

Ooops! :oops:

Yes, sorry both. - Didn't look closely enough at those leaves! - Should have gone to Specsavers!

Dare I admit that I've actually got quite a bit of Ground Ivy, (and it really is Ground Ivy :oops: ), in the garden, too. :roll:

Mike.

Re: Rust for ID please

Hi Adam,

I haven't checked with your microscopy details, but the leaves look very much like those of Ground Ivy - Glechoma hederacea.

So that would make this stage III of the rust Puccinia glechomatis.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Unwanted fungi - (was Blushing Rosette)

Strange that it's now the dog that's getting the blame for pulling these out ? :roll: A quote from your other thread - where we identified them as Blushing Rosette: - I have a bunch of them and when i pull them they are leaving holes in my lawn This site is primarily for those who enjoy the study of...

Re: Expert opinions on satellite mushroom?

You are of course, perfectly entitled to your own opinions and beliefs, as I am to mine. And I stand by what I have previously said - 100% In order for what is shown to even resemble a basic mushroom shape, one would have to conveniently forget about the structures in the right hand "third" of the i...

Re: Expert opinions on satellite mushroom?

I think it rather incredulous that someone would consider this to be a "megalithic mushroom", in preference to discounting the rather obvious. Forgive my disbelief, but had you found something similar which vaguely resembled the shape of a boat, would you have suspected it to be a gigantic stone age...

Re: Expert opinions on satellite mushroom?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

You say that you require "expert opinion" on the two images - but what, exactly, is the basis of your belief that these two images have anything to do with UK Fungi (or indeed, any fungi worldwide for that matter)?

Regards,
Mike.

Re: help identify

From what I can see when viewing photos 1 & 2 at largest size, it appears that there are distinct pores showing in the paler areas of the fungus. I'm tempted to suggest that this might be something like the beginnings of Abortiporus biennis - Blushing Rosette. Do the tops regularly get mown off if t...
