Re: Russula?

Hello,

without the spore print colour and the chemical reactions on FeSO4 and Guajak it is not possible for me to narrow it down to something.
I could imagine that it is one of the Xerampelinae, but then it should have a greenish reaction on FeSO4.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

Hello, I think the difference in the ascus size is due to the shrinking effect of dead asci. Did you compare the ascus measurements of your dead asci with the data given for living asci? Asci and often also spores in inoperculate ascomycetes shrink considerably when drying, up to 30%. Meaning an asc...

Re: Russula (decipiens I think)

Dear Adam, the always quite pale rose coulered caps are typical for R. veternosa, whereas R. decipiens usually has more intense colours, e.g. wine-red. Its true that the coulor range is overlapping, but as you have several fruitbodies and they are all identical in coulor, I thinks its a heavy argume...

Re: Small, brown, domed fungus

Hello, there are different points that speek against Psilocybe coprophila, but I agree that more microscopical details (especially about the cystidia) would better solve the problem. - Psilocybe coprophila has gills that are broadly attached - P. c. is growing on pure dung, not on pure ground or veg...

Re: Small, brown, domed fungus

Hello,

this is a foto of Stopharia percevalii.

I admit that the cap colour doesn't fit too good to your collection, but L. ceres does neither.

best regards,

Re: White agaric...doesn't look right for Marasmius oreades

Hello Adam,

I think its Marasmius oreades anyway.

B.t.w.: Why do I have to Login (again) each time I answer to a thread, though i'm logged-in already?

best regards,

Re: Russula identification - help please

Hello, Chris has perectly right, when he states that Russula is usually not to identify macroscopically by foto. But with some expercience some species can nevertheless be named with a high certainty (though not an absolute certainty ...) In your case I would bet a lot on Russula vesca, as the gener...

Re: Id Request: Small white asco on leaf petioles of ash perhaps

Hello, the fruiting periode of Hymenoscyphus albidus is decidedly earlier, May to June, whereas the pathogenic H. fraxineus fruits July to August. So I would be very astonished if this would not turn out to be H. fraxineus. In Germany I have not seen H. albidus anymore since at least five years. bes...
