Re: Little agaric in grass and moss

Hi Adam,

Have you considered possibility of Galerina? - maybe something like G.vittiformis?

Regards,
Mike

Re: Possible Mazegill Gloeophyllum

Hi Bob, I'm not overly familiar with Gloeophyllum species, but i'd be tempted to think that this is likely to be Gloeophyllum sepiarium . As you say, Gloeophyllum odoratum is rare, with only 14 records, and likewise, the other two "British" species, G.abietinum , and G.trabeum have only 19 and 21 re...

Re: Unknown

Hi Chris, It could be something like Stemonitopsis typhina . The photo is a bit small, but I think I can see the thin black columella within some of the sporocarps. (In S.typhina that should reach the apex). They start of white like this and then go through shades of pink, ending up dark grey-brown....

Re: Nectria Peziza?

** In the case of my example, it was removed by slicing off the rotten wood to which it was attached, and then pinning that slice of wood, with the myxo still "in situ", to a piece of cork tile fixed to the bottom of a plastic container. It's important when transporting immature myxo's, (certainly ...

Re: Nectria Peziza?

Hi Hugh, No, not a Nectria . - Your find is a myxomycete, a *slime mould". Unfortunately it isn't yet fully mature, Possibly one of the Physarum 's, but suggesting a species at this stage wouldn't be much more than a guess. It does look quite similar to this: - Red Myxo 01.jpg which I found back in ...

Re: Mucilago? help with ID needed

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. It may well be Mucilago crustacea , as there are few other species that have similar looks. However, your find appears to be not quite fully mature, and could, conceivably be something like Fuligo candida , or Brefeldia maxima , both of which can look much the same as yo...

Re: Armillaria tabescens or something else?

Hi,

If they are somewhere where you can make a return visit, keep an eye on them.

Not an Armillaria species.

These are freshly emerged, but I think you'll find that they grow more recognisably into one of the Pleurotus (Oyster Fungus) species - Probably P.ostreatus.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Fungi ID please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Your fungus is a Mycena species.

Could well be Mycena galericulata, (Common Bonnet), but Mycenas are difficult to ID from photos alone.

Regards,
Mike.

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

Nicely done. Is there a reason for starting a new 'Fungus of the Day' thread? Regards, Chris Thanks. That's a good point - I just clicked on the one above, without realising it was a new thread. Perhaps Adam can sort this one? Hi, Looks like Gary had inadvertently started a new thread. - I've combi...

Re: 2nd try at uploading ID request....

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your fungus is a freshly emerging example of Fomitopsis betulina - Birch Polypore. Until recently, (2016), the scientific name was Piptoporus betulinus . The name change came about as a result of genome DNA sequencing in 2016, but it is still shown as Piptoporus betulinu...

Re: Some ID help Please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Nice find! - This is one I've never yet managed to find, despite several years of looking!

It's Rhodotus palmatus - Wrinkled Peach.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: ID please-various woodland mushrooms

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. No.1 Looks like a rather old and dry example of one of the Lactarius (Milkcap) species. Are they drops of whitish "milk" that can be seen on the gill shot? (Can't decide whether it's that or maybe tiny whitish stones). Either way, I wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to ...
