Re: Possible Laccaria

A lot of people recommend that Collins but I find the photos poor. They mostly show only the top shots, when you need to see gills and stem at least as importantly.

Re: Possible Laccaria

What guide book do you use, Bob? Most split fungi by spore colour. You can usually guess spore colour from the gill colour, or you can see spores on the stem or they drop spores on the mushrooms below but if not, best to take a spore print. Then, a good guide book will describe the main groups (spli...

Re: Possible Laccaria

Tubaria occurred to me but i was hesitant to suggest it because the stipe looks quite robust (short and thick), so I left it to the experts. :)

Re: Possible Laccaria

i would guess these are a brown spored species, which would rule out Laccaria. Always start with spore colour. :)

Re: Velvet Shank ?

Ideally they should allow reporting at a say two levels of identification so in this case designate Flammulina velutipes and mark as non specific report and then subdivide and mark as confirmed unique id from experts. I thought this for a while. It seems a shame not to get a record at all because i...

Little agaric in grass and moss

Looks like a Conocybe to me, anyone confident to go any further? Cap diameter 8mm.
Only got a tiny spore drop. 11.7 - 11.9 x 6.7-6.8um
Growing in a cemetery near some shrubs.

Re: Mushroom ID please.. worried for our dog

A lovely display of a Mycena (Bonnet) species. No need to worry about the dog, they are not significantly poisonous. My dog has been on 100s of forays in woods covered in fungi and always been fine. Dogs rarely eat fungi but they sniff everything.

Re: ID please-various woodland mushrooms

First one is definitely a Lactarius. To get further, you need to taste the milk and the flesh, note the milk colour and watch for colour change on drying. It might be orange and go darker or go a bit greenish. I would like to suggest not picking so many specimens but leave them behind for others to ...
