Re: Fungal finds from Essex

I'm cheating a tad with this one as it's actually from the New Forest, but it's a cool find so wanted to share it - Mensularia nodulosa on beech (Fagus sylvatica). This particular beech was clad with various fungal species, though it was this one that is perhaps the most important from a recording p...

Re: Winter agarics

Found only two myself in the New Forest yesterday - Panellus stipticus and Pleurotus ostreatus. Some more perishable poroids were about though, including Phlebia tremellosa. However, like Adam, most were brackets and resupinates more hardy in nature.

Hah! It makes more sense now that you inverted it. :lol:

Re: Found these in the garden

Looks like they could be Pleurotus sp. (probably Pleutorus ostreatus, if so). Is that a horse chestnut stump? This fungus is rather common on that species of host.

Re: White/cream fungus

Thanks for the confirmation :)

I'll be down in the New Forest on Friday so am hoping I can come across this, as I'll be going to Bolderwood.

Re: White/cream fungus

Is the host a gymnosperm (i.e. pine)? If so, it could be Postia ptychogaster.

Re: Buying a microscope - questions

To update, I have contacted Meiji to ascertain a price as that will indicate what range I shall be toying with with the cost. Malcolm Storey's article in Field Mycology 17 (4) has really aided with simplifying a rather complex issue. I have informally settled on wanting a compound trinocular (so I c...

Re: Fungal finds from Essex

This is a really sweet one from the other day - in the sense of the host tree just looking splendid. Here we can see a weeping pagoda tree ( Styphnolobium japonicum 'Pendula'), which is sporting a single Pleurotus sp. (suspecting Pleutorus dryinus ) on one of the larger contortions. The chances are ...

Re: Recording finds from the field

Thanks (to both of you). Recorder 6 looks good. The learning curve isn't too much of an issue. I suppose my only query is as follows: can I record finds of polypores down to a level of the single host tree, or does one 'plot point' relate to an area - let's say - 100mx100m? The idea of uploading dir...

Recording finds from the field

Evening all, I am looking to start recording all of my finds when I am out looking for fungi. I came across MapMate (http://www.mapmate.co.uk), which is promoted by the Essex Field Club and appears easy enough to use. Does anyone have experience with this software or any other GIS systems used for a...
