Re: Super spores - but what's the fungus!?

Hello, yes, definitely a Hebeloma. The strongly dextrinoid spores and the likewise strongly loosening perispore suggest one of the sacchariolens-group, though the smell is said to be indistinct. For determination you need thorough measurements of the cheilocystidia, the number of gills that reach th...

Re: ID please

Hello,

one of the Honey Fungus species.
If I should guess, I'd say it is Armillaria gallica/lutea.

best regards,

Re: Pale agaric on soil

Hello Adam, I think you have one of these few Psathyrellas with metuloid cystidia, which are now in the genus Homophron. Wether Homophron/Psathyrella cernua or H./P. spadicea I can't judge without literature. For the latter the overall habit is a bit too slender, so may be cernua .... best regards, ...

Re: Identification

Hello,

I think the spore print is white, and if you take a nose full of the strong and very unpleasant smell, you won't forget this species again. At least when I'm right in thinking that this should be Tricholoma sulphureum.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Help with Amanita identification please?

Hello,

Death Caps would have a volva, which should be well visible in such careful collected specimens. Also the prominent ring that hangs down like a skirt from just below the gills is very significant - for Amanita excelsa/spissa, which is the species on the fotos in fact.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Whitish-brown club fungi in a suburban garden

Hello, Clavaria tenuipes has been separated in two species by KAJAN & GRAUWINKEL (1987). C. tenuipes ss. str. is confined to burning places and has narrow spores (max. 8 µm x 3 µm), whereas C. krieglsteiner is growing without burning places and has spores up to 9,5 x 6,5 µm. In Funga Nordica both ar...

Re: Please help me ID

Hello,

this is one of the Honey Fungus species (Armillaria spec.), but can't say which one. Due to the yellow colour of the ring in the last picture it might well be Armillaria gallica (= lutea).

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Another Russula...

Hello, this such a typical Russula vesca that you can spare the time for microscoping. If you nevertheless want to prove the determination microscopically, it is enough to look for the so-called Crins in the cap surface. These are slightly thickwalled, pointed, seta-like "needles". You need to do th...

Re: large Lepiota from Ainsdale

Hello,

in my opinion this is Lepiota (Echinoderma) aspera.

The cuticule is typical for Echinoderma spp., and the spore size as well as the very crowded gills suit perfect for L. aspera.

best regards,
Andreas
