BBC "In Our Time" - Fungi

I have to confess I am an "In Our Time" addict. All the programmes are available to download as podcasts. Today's was on Fungi; I suspect many on here know most of what was discussed, but it's always interesting to see what is presented to the general public. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09...

Hello,

@Chris: Did you mean Tubaria dispersa? T. confragosa has a ring and much darker colours.

best regards,
Andreas
Coming back to this one briefly. I must have had a blank moment - I meant Tubaria furfuracea. Though T. dispersa would, I agree, also be in the mix . . .

Re: Fungus on rope!

Hi Mark Just looking at the photo I immediately thought of the old " Melanotus textilis " and having read the full thread see you have arrived at the same conclusion. With the usual microscopy proviso I see no reason to think otherwise: http://www.basidiochecklist.info/DisplayResults.asp?intGBNum=52...

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

I'm sure you and Adam will get there in the end. The image in the previous post is probably of Tubaria confragosa ; that is based on general colour, time of year, and a lot of experience. It doesn't really have enough information to be certain however - seeing the fungus in its habitat, what was it ...

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Hi you need to click the "Place inline" tab for each perhaps? I'll leave it to the more technologically savvy . . . From those tiny images I'm tempted to suggest (this is more a guessing game than anything else): 1 Lycoperdon nigrescens 2 Lycoperdon pyriforme 3 dunno - Panaeolus sp.? 4 A Russula -of...

Re: Possible Hare'sfoot Inkcaps (Coprinopsis lagopus)?

Hi Lee
not young anything really - veil almost totally disappeared. I really think anything would be a guess without careful checking of micro-features - one of which would have been the nature of that selfsame veil . . . .

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Hello and welcome (to you and your daughters) to UK fungi I can only see one picture, rather than six. It shows a cluster of sulphur tuft toadstools Hypholoma fasciculare on a birch tree. In places you can see traces of the veil around the edges of the caps, also (if one knows where to look) you can...
