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

A while since I have had anything worth posting here. In Yorkshire it has been a dire year. I did a walk around a reclaimed rubbish tip and spotted what looked like a bit of Trametes on the path edge about 2" across. I expected buried wood but it was growing from the soil. I just put it in my pocket...

Re: Chantarelle or not

Chris
The spores of the third specimen were dextrinoid and the wrong size for Cantherellus so unless Andreas disagrees I am sticking with Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca.

Re: Chantarelle or not

Thanks Chris. I am pleased you agree with what I thought but I had someone say the last one(three photos) was a true Chantarelle. I will wait to see if Andreas has any thoughts.
I called the third one H var pallida but that was before I had even heard of fuscosquamula and macrospora.

Chantarelle or not

After all these years I really should know the difference by now but can people tell me what they think about these.

Re: Small capped mushrooms in a mixed woodland. ID please.

They are Armillaria. The first two probably A gallica, the last two not so sure.
