Re: Pluteus

Megacollybia platyphylla (adnate/emarginate gills and should have a white spore print). Pluteus have free gills and pink spore prints.

Re: Hohenbuehelia cyphelliformis - I think

Hello Steve I've had another breeze through my keys also! The Hohenbuehelia Section in FAN5 (1995) is by Steen Elborne - I don't have FN. According to his descriptions fluxilis (as well as atrocaerulea & mastrucata ) have "numerous metuloids on both edge and sides of lamellae...". The metuloids of f...

Re: Early Risers - A Thread for reporting unexpectedly early sightings

Very unusual to see Suillus this early; I've only one record of Suillus before July, and that was in May 2004 ( S. granulatus ). Interestingly, someone told me last Sunday that they had seen some at a local site (although he had not collected any). P. cervinus is not that unusual around here early i...

Re: Hohenbuehelia cyphelliformis - I think

Hello Steve I don't find many of these and they don't seem very easy. Looking through FAN3, they suggest cyphelliformis is mainly on "woody herbs" and only rarely on branches of deciduous trees: cap is up to 9mm across. Then there is fluxilis with 2-spored basidia (cap to 19mm). The other two possib...

Re: Fungus Of The Day

I think you are right Dave. I can't see any veil on your image and the cuticle cells of Parasola are very similar to the veil in patouillardii: also the gill cystidia are very similar. It may well be Parasola keuhneri is very which is close in spore size to patouilladii.

Re: Fungus Of The Day

Talking of Parasola's, a quick image from the P. auricoma which appeared in the flower bed overnight: showing cap cuticle cells, thick walled brown setae and ellipsoid spores.

Re: Psathyrella?

Yes, and candolleana is an early fruiter; my earliest record is May 11th., with most records in the summer and few after September. Leucotephra records start in July and it is clearly less common around here: for every one of these I have 13 finds of candolleana ! As well as being caespitose, leucot...

Re: Psathyrella?

Yes Psathyrella. I think it is candolleana, although I can't make out an appendiculate veil on the cap edge on the images.
Were there any pleurocystidia? P. candolleana doesn't have any.

Re: Identification Request for Fungus in Grass

This is a species of Inocybe. First step is to check if spores are smooth or nodulose.

Re: 3 for ID please

Hi,
I think you're correct in that the first is Panaeolus fimicola.
The second is likely to be Psathyrella spadiceogrisea.
The third is Agrocybe pediades.
