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. Mike Valentine has emailed to remind me where the snags lie in uploading images. I shall do another posting of another fungus soon. There's been some progress si...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

With a glorious day pretty much guaranteed, in the extended spell of dry sunny weather we’re having, I made another trip to the Lake District on Monday 2nd July, intent on walking Langstrath, a valley I hadn't previously visited, along with Glaramara and Allen Crags, – two fells that I hadn't visite...

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. If it was the latter, I would recommend reading, and following the...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Tuesday, 5th June was forecast to be a nice day, so, another trip to the Lake District - to do the Kentmere Horseshoe. During the walk, I decided to include High Street and Goat Scar as two “extra” summits. These two aren’t considered part of the usual horseshoe, but the legs were feeling good on th...

Re: Unidentified fungi Sheffield

Hmmm! - looks like someone's had an accident with an expanding foam cartridge! :lol: Have you touched it? - What is its consistency? If this is genuinely growing there, it must be one of the slime moulds - (myxomycetes). They aren't fungi, but they are studied by some mycologists. Wouldn't like to h...

Re: Rusty red crustose lichen. - (ID request).

Thanks both. Chris, Xanthoria elegans was one of several suspects that I'd looked at, but this, like the others I'd looked at seemed to be just too far away, and not showing any distinct characteristics to enable me to plump for a particular species. With Paul's reply - now I know why! :shock: Paul,...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Thursday, 24th May was forecast to be a fine sunny day, so I made another trip to the Lake District with the idea of walking the Fairfield Horseshoe. - I'd previously been up most of the fells involved, but had never made a point of doing the actual Horseshoe. Making an early start, I parked the car...

Re: Polyporus squamosus?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I think you can safely say that is definitely P.squamosus.

Nothing with similar macro characteristics, (I'm thinking of P.tuberaster), would grow with such a large grouping and to such a large size.

Regards,
Mike.
