Re: little brown dune fungus

I did say that the photos weren't up to much! and the spore print not much better!
It didn't really look like either Cd or Pa.

Re: Woodwax?

In Boertmann there's a yellow variety - used to be Hygrocybe laeta flava- though I can't remember ever seeing it.

white blister rust on purple sprouting broccoli

I noticed this last year on my purple sprouting broccoli but forgot to take a photo. It's only on a small part of the plants and only really appeared towards the end of the season with the broccoli flowering (at least that's when I noticed it). Albugo candida ,not really a fungus at all but an Oomyc...

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

Plums and custard (Tricholomopsis rutilans) 2 different clumps on 2 dead stumps next to each other in a friend's garden in West Wales.

Not unusual but I've been trying to sort out reducing file size using Picasa so I thought I'd post them
