Re: Laccaria tortilis?

Not Laccaria tortilis which has well-formed gills rather than these somewhat reduced, interveined ones; habitat is wrong as well. Microscopy needed but I would suggest something along the lines of Arrhenia rickenii . Interestingly I have collected A. rickenii in moss on a formerly concreted area: Ar...

Re: Parasola ID needed please

Point taken about the spore size. I did measure them at 8.4-9.3 x 8.2-9.6 µm which is why I had rejected C. cordisporus which reportedly has spores 6.5-8.8 x 4-5 µm (Buczacki et al.). Further research suggests that the latter may well be incorrect so I am happy to accept C. cordisporus. The brown o...

Re: Parasola ID needed please

The genus Parasola doesn't have a veil. There are two species here: the orange-coloured one at the bottom could well be Parasola misera ; the one with the veil is Coprinopsis cordispora ("cordispora" meaning heart-shaped spore). Here are a couple of images of my collections of Coprinopsis cordispora...

Re: Microfungus on Garden Pansy

Hello Simon Of course you have done nothing stupid; this is a well-presented query. Ellis and Ellis , while excellent, is not complete and there has been a lot of work on these fungi since that book was published. Your fungus is Ramularia agrestis Sacc. I have double checked in Uwe Braun's monumenta...

Re: Blue-staining mushroom

Roy's caution is fully justified. Under the microscope a look at the gill edge does make life simpler. Stropharia caerulea has the dauntingly named cheilochrysocystidia. It's just a useful word to explain to those in the know that: (1) The toadstool has specialised cells (cystidia) (2) These cystidi...

Clitocybe sp. ? :shock:
A bit like http://www.biopix.es/photos/jcs-clitocy ... -50720.jpg (though not that one). Just a thought; I am unfamiliar with the mycota of Türkiye, which is likely to be very different from that of the UK . . .

Re: What is this fungis Id?

One of those confusing greyish Clitocybe species? Difficult enough in the UK, but abroad . . . . :?

For those who are unsure what the P stands for, the full name is Phallus hadriani :D

Welcome to Uk Fungi, General !
Did you not spot my Phallus at the end of the previous paragraph? :roll:

Re: Please ID

Hi what is the difference between "technically from Montenegro" and "from Montenegro"? ;) A lot of the back issues of Czech Mycology are now available online. If you download http://www.czechmycology.org/_cm/CM484.pdf you will find (starting at page 273) a useful conspectus on the genus Phallus . Th...

Thanks Chris - at least I was right that they're pedicels! Might you have contact details for Dr. Helfer?
Hi Jenny
from a 2010 paper in Mycotaxon it was s.helfer@rbge.ac.uk if that no longer works you'd just have to go via the general RBGE contacts.
