Re: Ganoderma sp

Hi Bob

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

Regards

John

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?...

Re: Moss Fungus ...

This is indeed a strange one . . . without the gill attachment conundrum this would point to Rickenella fibula - look at the caulocystidia on the upper part of the stipes . . . [/i] Thanks Chris So I was not confused without reason, presumably the "incorrect" gill attachment is just an anomaly and ...

Re: Moss Fungus ...

Can't help with ID, but do you realise you don't have to click on the "place inline" button (circled in image attached) which has NO bearing on whether the images are displayed. It only causes them to be displayed in a long scrolling list that has the advantage of allowing you to put comments betwe...

Moss Fungus ...

When I first saw this I immediately thought Rickenella fibula, but on closer inspection it just does not seem to fit, the gills show little sign of being decurrent and are very distant. Have looked at Lichenomphalia but that seems wrong as well. This was growing on or in close association with moss,...

Re: Myxo on dead Hogweed stem

Hi, this is Comatricha tenerrima , which I have found many, many times on herbal stems and grasses, too. Marja Hi Marja Many thanks for your help, at least I managed to correctly get to genus level ..... Having lost the opportunity to have my specimen looked at by John (Pitufo) I had given up on th...

Re: What genus are these ?

........... it looks to have big cheilocystidia - if that is what we can see on the gill edge...... From the photo's and the spore colour (and if they are large cystidia on the gill edge -which seems likely) I would look at Macrocystidia cucumis . Thanks for your thought Dave, a definite possibilit...

Re: What genus are these ?

Rhodocollybia butyracea? Were the caps greasy? I don't think the gills are crowded enough for that - John does specifically call the gills "distant". Chris I am pretty certain it is not R. butyracea which I see very often, I attach a close up of the gills that may or may not help ? DSC_0028-001.JPG

What genus are these ?

As per usual I am struggling with these, felt sure they looked familiar but an ID or even a genus eludes me ... can anyone offer any suggestions ? Cap: 1.5 cm, slightly granular, convex with a wavy edge Stipe: 3 cm, fibrillose with a slightly bulbous base Gills: adnexed and distant, gill edges seem ...
