Re: Rust of the day!

Thanks, Nigel :)
I think this is probably Phragmidium violaceum on bramble. Was looking for something more interesting, but only found these yesterday.

Re: Orchids for ID - thanks

From my Francis Rose "Wildflower key" The differences are that D.purpurella is much shorter (10-25cm) than D.praetermissa (20-60cm tall) The lower flower lip of D.purpurella is supposed to be shield or diamond shaped.

Re: Dryad's Saddle

Great picture Gracie! Just remember that it's "a fungus" or "some fungi" - fungus is singular ie for one species and fungi is plural, more than one species :)

Re: Peziza? on woodchip

Hi Adam, I'd initially thought maybe P.varia as it fit with some of the macro pics, grows up to 15cm in size, and fits with the spore characteristics given. But I then discounted it because the paraphyses showing in your photo didn't seem to have the relevant characteristics quoted in Fungi of Swit...

Literature and resources for general fungi

Field guides - they all claim to be complete or comprehensive and none of them are as they only contain a tiny fraction of fungi species Collins Complete Guide to British Mushrooms and Toadstools - not at all complete, but compact and good for its size Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe - ...

Re: Common names

I sometimes use English names when they are well established and the scientific name is hard to say. When a genus is obvious and familiar, I use the scientific name, eg Russula. For less familiar fungi to me, I can often remember just the English name, eg Candlesnuff Fungus (off the top of my head, ...
