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

I'm moving from West Wales to Devon and found these Hygrocybe conica (Blackening Waxcap) in my new lawn on Saturday !
If I believed in signs I'd think this was one!
A bit of frost over the weekend so caught them just in time.
Interesting to see them surrounded by Achillea

Re: One to look out for

Found it today on the Aberystwyth University Campus- haven't taken a photo yet.
Lots of Griselinia hedges around here near the coast.
Thanks for making me look for it!

At this time I’m simply wishing to ascertain if you would be interested in leading a fungal foray at ...

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.
I'll try and get back up there and get some better pictures/specimens.

little brown dune fungus

Led a dune fungi walk at Ynys Las near Aberystwyth on Saturday with Penny for Aber Bot Soc. Found most of the spp. in the PFRN Dune fungi booklet and a few others. However one little brown rascal is foxing me. It was small and brown associated with Ammophila in new yellow dunes and in rings? or line...

Re: Woodwax?

In Boertmann there's a yellow variety - used to be Hygrocybe laeta flava- though I can't remember ever seeing it. In laeta usually the caps go pinkish tan as they get older rather than paler Let's hope the newish name Gliophorus laetus is the last one it gets (based on DNA sequencing it should be). ...

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...
