Re: Immature myxomycete for ID

Thanks Mike,

I'll try to mature any immature slime moulds I find in the future. Very interesting organisms.

Mycena

This Mycena was found growing on the trunk of a Silver Birch tree yesterday in Tilgate Park, Crawley, Sussex. It was growing at about head height. Any ID help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
James

Immature myxomycete for ID

Hello everyone

Today on a West Weald Fungus Recording Group meeting I found this immature slime mould on a piece of rotten wood (probably Beech). As it's an immature I didn't collect any. Is it possible to ID as it's not mature?

Thanks,
James

Re: Fungus on grass stem

Ah I see, I'll keep a look out on nearby grasses to see if they develop the same fungus. Perhaps I might find one that's mature!

Thanks a lot, James

Re: Fungus on grass stem

Hi Chris
I have tried to mount a bit of the black stuff on a slide. What should I be looking out for?

Re: Fungus on grass stem

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your response. What sort of microscopy is necessary? I will try and work out the exact host tomorrow. Grass ID is something I've been really working on recently although I've barely made any progress and I really am helpless at it!

Fungus on grass stem

Yesterday I came across this microfungus on a grass stem in my garden. It appeared to have killed the end of the grass stem, although the rest still seemed very healthy. There was a yellow band separating the dead bit and the healthy green bit. If anyone knows what this could be then that would be g...

Mushroom on Oak/Beech tree

Hello This single mushroom was found at the very base of a trunk of what is either an Oak or a Beech tree. I thought it was either a Pluteus or an Entoloma although I can't find any species that fit from either. I am in the process of getting spores so if they are needed then I will send photos & me...
