Re: Visit to Fundy National Park

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. As the site name implies, we deal with fungi from the United Kingdom, and fungi from overseas are not necessarily our strong point! However, I think your fungus may be "Yellow Patches" - Amanita flavoconia . It's not one we have in the UK, but it is known from Fundy Nati...

Re: Please Help ID

Unfortunately, unlike the Birch Polypore, much more information would be needed in order to give any reasonable suggestion as to the species shown here.

Please see: - viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49

Re: Please help ID

Hello, and welcome to UK Fungi.

This is Piptoporus betulinus - or, as it is now known - Fomitopsis betulina.
Common name Birch Polypore. (You can see from the photo that it is growing on a fallen Birch Trunk).

Regards,
Mike.

. . . I have been unable to find a local group, help is appreciated? Hi, I would advise contacting the Cotswold Fungus Group: - http://www.cotswoldfungusgroup.com/ who cover the northern part of Wiltshire.

Re: Fungus found growing on dead stump in garden

Of the species you mention, this looks most like Sulphur Tuft - Hypholoma fasciculare.

Certainly not Velvet Shank/Velvet Foot or Sheathed Woodtuft.

Hi Steve, It seems to have all the right characteristics for Clavaria tenuipes Has the same macro looks, and spores are about right (and it grows in soil with grass, and has been recorded in suburban lawns). Funga Nordica has C.tenuipes spores between 6.5-9.5µ x 4.5-5.0µ Collins Fungi Guide has C.te...

I wanted to show them both together so that the differences can be seen. Asterophora parasitica - Silky Piggyback: - 05 A...

Re: A frustrating fungus!

Hi,

Looks like Paxillus involutus or one of its very close relatives.
