Re: Help with identification.

Although young, these brackets are clearly developing pores - so not Pseudohydnum, an altogether different fungus, gelatinous etc.
Given the general appearance and habitat I would suggest immature Postia subcaesia, also known as Oligoporus subcaesius and Tyromyces subcaesius

Re: Oysterlings

A proper gill shot would indeed be useful - a few quick snaps are often simply not enough. If you have a look at the specimens over towards the left they appear to have a brown spore deposit: a spore print would be conclusive . If the fungus has brown spores it can't be a Panellus . If the caps had ...

Re: Mycena?

Hi Andrew do read this: http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 surely it's fair to spend a little more time getting further details, when you're asking for others' time? Based on the limited info I can glean here I would (tentatively) suggest Mycena arcangeliana , was it growing on wood/twig...

Re: Beige/grey woodland mushrooms. Pale yellow gills. Blewits?

Why did you collect so many of them? Also, in general, if one wants an ID the fungus needs to be collected more carefully than has been the case here.

Re: Distribution of European Pear Rust

Hi Jerry
I'll keep an eye open, I don't come across many pear trees - though I'm sure I saw nothing on a tree I noticed in suburban Huddersfield a week ago.
To give people an idea of what they are looking for:
Gymnosporangium sabinae 0a.jpg

Re: Chantarelle or not

Thanks Chris. I am pleased you agree with what I thought but I had someone say the last one(three photos) was a true Chantarelle. I will wait to see if Andreas has any thoughts. I called the third one H var pallida but that was before I had even heard of fuscosquamula and macrospora. Mal That last ...

Re: Chantarelle or not

Andreas' word will be the best but I think the top one is Cantharellus cibarius, and the others all appear to be Hygrophoropsis taxa - I'm intrigued by image #3.

One to look out for

Some weeks back my old Yorkshire mycological colleague Jerry Cooper https://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/about/people/staff-details?id=Y29vcGVyag== was over in the UK and stayed with me for a couple of days in my Scarborough flat. We had a walk round the area noting how many NZ plants were present in ...

Re: Whitish-brown club fungi in a suburban garden

. . . Also interesting is his observation (from 1950) that "macroscopic direction has given way to microscopic confusion". Today it seems that microscopic direction has given way to DNA confusion. Especially good is this bit: "Not until the hyphae have been traced through their elaborate organisati...

Re: Visit to Charlecote Park, nr Warwick

Far too old to be certain (+ not enough features - please don't just rely on a single shot), but Pleurotus cornucopiae comes to mind . . .

PS if it's common surely there must be better examples, and see: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49

Re: Gingko Rust

I'm afraid my tree is infected as well. Is this fatal for the tree? Hello and welcome to UK Fungi. How old is your tree? It's survived this long hasn't it? Flippancy aside there's absolutely no need to worry . There is a huge range of fungi which colonise leaves as they approach leaf-fall, or occur...
