Re: Small brown capped mushroom with lateral stem

Many thanks again, Adam, I have re-examined the spores in the spore print and one or two spores do have tiny spines which are only just visible with oil immersion (which I did use on the specimen I reported to you). This is obviously Crepidotus applanatus as you say. How I could not have got to the ...

Re: Please help id this Entoloma

Many thanks, Adam, I am very happy with that. As you have found, it fits the description in FE quite well. The very varied cystidia of our specimen fit the description very well. Would it be ok to claim it even though our spores are smaller than those of Noordeloos?

Re: Blue-green hyphomycete

Oh dear, Chris, I am well out of my depth but delighted at the information in this link of yours. The depth of the experience of these authors and the utter beauty of their illustrations I will remember and keep in my new Trichoderma folder. But I see what you mean. It was as I feared it might be. I...

Re: Blue-green hyphomycete

Hi Mike This is very helpful. I have downloaded the .pdf from your link and am trying to save it. In the meantime I have rushed through the rest of the key and can see I shall have to take this more slowly. My hyphomycete does not key out yet. I will persist and tell you where the key leads me in th...

Re: Blue-green hyphomycete

Hi Chris Thank you, I have checked out E&E and found Chromocrea aureoviridis to be nearest. It did not seem to fit exactly so I went onto Google Images to find a paper by Priscila Chaverri and Gary J. Samuels - 'Hypocrea/Trichoderma... with green spores'. That seemed to be right. It offers a key to ...

Re: ID request Reddening Polypore

I did not find gloeocystidia until I re-examined the specimen after your identification. Then I found a single one with no granules in it so might not have recognised it as a gloeocystidium. Had I known my specimen had them I just might have got it by keying in R&M. Thank you both my friends for all...
