Re: Any chance of getting to genus level ?

Many thanks Andreas for your help, nice to know what genus at least ... as you say no chance of reaching a positive ID although it "looks" a bit like E. caccabus visually and fits the habitat. I will just record it as Entoloma sp. for my purposes Once again thank you for taking the time to offer an ...

Any chance of getting to genus level ?

Found these growing through moss in a damp plantation woodland under mainly young oak with some alder and spruce nearby. Quite small caps at less than 1 cm across, striate from edge to depressed centre, gills well spaced and thickish, adnate tending to decurrent attached at a sort of ring ? Spore pr...

Re: Stropharia maybe ?

Many thanks Andreas, Hypholoma subericaeum looks very likely and certainly fits the macro features and habitat. At least I was not too far out in my original ID ;) ;)

Kind regards

Re: Stropharia maybe ?

Thanks Adam for your thoughts, H. marginatum is a species that I regularly see in coniferous areas and am pretty sure this is not that.

These were growing out of wood debris at the base of probably an old willow with no conifers anywhere close by.

Stropharia maybe ?

When I first saw these I was thinking Leratiomyces ceres despite not being on woodchip, on reflection I now think not. The spore print was purple brown so perhaps a Psathyrella but can find none with the red cap colour albeit it is hygrophanous and fades to tan That takes me back to Stropharia but a...

Re: One to look out for

Very interesting Chris, Griselinia is quite a common garden plant although as you say more likely to be cultivated near the coast.

Having said that I used to have one in my Warwickshire garden until it decided against the winter frosts we always get ....

Re: Is this a fungus ??

Many thanks for your thoughts Andreas

I was never very convinced this was fungal so I was clearly right to be unsure

Kind regards

Is this a fungus ??

As it is pouring down outside I have been reviewing some photos I took earlier this week... Some of these have me perplexed as I assume it is fungal but as to where to look I am at a loss. Only small at less than 1 cm across, gelatinous membrane that appears to be covering "eggs", I am toying with i...

Re: Ganoderma sp

Hi Bob

I would expect these to be Cushion Bracket - Phellinus pomaceus, quite common on blackthorn and related trees

Re: Moss Fungus ...

[ quote="Chris Johnson" post_id=9214 time=1512641152 user_id=153] The only Galerina I can think of with such distant gills is Galerina calyptrata . It has a fleshy umbo and obvious caulocystidia. I doubt you will get any further without microscopy though. http://outerhebridesfungi.co.uk/species.php?...
