Re: Small Brown Fungus

Hi Chris, Don't know if you will have seen it already, but there is another Tephrocybe key in addition to Moser, that's available as PDF download if you have electronic access to BMS Journals: - "The Genus Tephrocybe Donk in Britain, PD Orton. - Bulletin of the British Mycological Society - Volume 1...

Re: Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

Hi,

Have you ruled out Lactarius salmonicolor?

I've never actually seen that one myself, but, like L.deliciosus, it does have the orange pits on its stems (whereas L.deterrimus doesn't), and I understand that it can get to around 20cm diameter.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Fungus on Gorse, help with ID please

Hi Mike Thanks, had considered Sulphur Tuft as possible from appearance but then failed to find the association with Gorse . . . . Hi, You can find known "associated organisms" by going to the Fungal Records Database of Britain and Ireland website: - http://www.fieldmycology.net/FRDBI/FRDBI.asp Onc...

Re: Fungus on Gorse, help with ID please

Hi,

Looks like Hypholoma fasciculare - Sulphur Tuft.

Gorse, (Ulex), is a known "associated organism" for H. fasciculare.

Mike.

Re: Lichen ID, help please.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your lichen is one of the Peltigera species (Dog Lichens). Unfortunately, I can't be more specific than that. - There are numerous Peltigera species, and I don't know enough about them. :oops: Perhaps someone else might be able to be more specific. Regards, Mike.

Re: Foray Today

Hi, Your first might be Suillus luteus - Slippery Jack, although the pore surface on that one is usually yellowish to varying degrees. There is another similar looking Suillus - Suillus viscidus - Sticky Bolete, (which I am not familiar with at all), but which does seem to have a better fit of the m...

Re: Large yellow mushrooms in a wet chalky lawn

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your fungus looks like one of the Paxillus species. As it is growing in an open grassy area, It's likely that it's not Paxillus involutus , which prefers shady / wooded areas. More likely to be Paxillus cuprinus (or possibly Paxillus ammoniavirescens or Paxillus obscurip...

Re: Fungi in the Landscape

That's a superb display, Adam. - And caught just at the right stage of development for a good photo! Spotted these yesterday, with a bit of autumn colour in the background.

Re: What Lichen is this please

Hi Nelly, I'm no expert on lichens so don't take this as a definite, but it looks to me like one of the Hypotrachyna species. Perhaps Hypotrachyna laevigata . (Previously known as Parmelia laevigata ). See: - http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/Hypotrachyna_laevigata.html for examples of that species....

Re: ID request please

Hi,

The first two images are of Weeping Widow - Lacrymaria lacrymabunda.

All the others look very much like Clustered Domecap - Lyophyllum decastes.

Re: Literature and resources for general fungi

Maybe some current problem with the website?

I can access the main site : - https://mycena.no/ as per norm.

Most of the individual species pages are also available from the index list

Just some of those pages are giving the "page cannot be reached" error message.

Re: Books on insects?

Hi Adam, Can't say that I have more than a passing interest in insects, so probably not the best person to take advice from - but I do have one book, which is "A Field Guide to the Insects of Britain and Norther Europe" by Michael Chinery, published by Collins. (Mine is the 1986 reprint, but I think...
