Re: Fungus on rope!

Hi Mark Just looking at the photo I immediately thought of the old " Melanotus textilis " and having read the full thread see you have arrived at the same conclusion. With the usual microscopy proviso I see no reason to think otherwise: http://www.basidiochecklist.info/DisplayResults.asp?intGBNum=52...

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

I'm sure you and Adam will get there in the end. The image in the previous post is probably of Tubaria confragosa ; that is based on general colour, time of year, and a lot of experience. It doesn't really have enough information to be certain however - seeing the fungus in its habitat, what was it ...

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Hi you need to click the "Place inline" tab for each perhaps? I'll leave it to the more technologically savvy . . . From those tiny images I'm tempted to suggest (this is more a guessing game than anything else): 1 Lycoperdon nigrescens 2 Lycoperdon pyriforme 3 dunno - Panaeolus sp.? 4 A Russula -of...

Re: Possible Hare'sfoot Inkcaps (Coprinopsis lagopus)?

Hi Lee
not young anything really - veil almost totally disappeared. I really think anything would be a guess without careful checking of micro-features - one of which would have been the nature of that selfsame veil . . . .

Re: Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Hello and welcome (to you and your daughters) to UK fungi I can only see one picture, rather than six. It shows a cluster of sulphur tuft toadstools Hypholoma fasciculare on a birch tree. In places you can see traces of the veil around the edges of the caps, also (if one knows where to look) you can...

Re: Fungus on Holly leaf

And possibly Phytomyza ilicis Holly leaf miner on the other leaf :) Definitely Phytomyza ilicis miner/gall (although the leaf thickens, whether this is actually a gall is questionable). I once worked wth an entomologist who said that in a quarter of a century's collecting he had seen just one adult...

Re: Fungus on Ginkgo biloba leaves

Hi Chris, Thanks your comment. I have collected fresh leaf specimens from the same location and one of our Group will attempt some microscope work. Do you have any thoughts on other fungi that maybe present on G.biloba leaves? E&E does not cover this 'host' and there doesn't seem to be much on the ...

Re: Laboulbenia on a carabid beetle

Hi Chris Thanks a lot for your comment. I wasn't even sure if it was fungal when I first saw it, so I'm amazed that it's possible to identify it (tentatively at least)! I'm fairly sure of the identity of the beetle. I'll definitely keep an eye out for more of this fungus on my beetle specimens. Bes...

Re: Laboulbenia on a carabid beetle

Hello James What a splendid find. Although on what I can see I cannot be 100% certain of what you have there, if the host has been identified correctly this is presumably Laboulbenia fasciculata (= L. brachiata ). I have come across it twice when examining museum collections of Yorkshire Coleoptera,...
