Re: Frosty finds

I would suggest Collins Complete (not!) Guide to British Mushrooms and Toadstools Sterry and Hughes 2009. Out of print but 2nd hand copies usually available via Amazon etc. Glossy pages with photos and small enough to carry in the field I keep seeing this myth about it being out of print. It's avai...

Re: Cobalt Crust Terana caerula

Back in the days of dial-up, a 500k image took all night to download. You newcomers to the internet are spoiled by fibre! A real world scenario is ordering a train full of wine, because you want one glass. I'll try again with the plugin soon. But I'll need to alter my custom code so both the tile vi...

Agaric parasiting a pyrenomycete?

Puzzled by this one. Reminds me of an Asterophora sp and looks like it is growing in association with a pyrenomycete (on a hardwood log) - stem is distinctly floccose. The scalp has some unusual spores with two oil droplets, whether they are from the agaric or the host I don't know. This is in Pembr...

Re: Unknown jelly fungus

Hi Adam, Your first photo looks like the basal part of a conidiophore. Your photo immediately above, looks like a more complete conidiophore. See:- http://guiahongosnavarra1garciabona.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Ascocoryne%20sarcoides It's in Spanish language, but you might get the gist of what the...

Re: Unknown jelly fungus

Details for Purple Jelly Disc (Ascocoryne sarcoides) at http://www.first-nature.com/fungi/ascocoryne-sarcoides.php may be of interest, Adam. This is what is perplexing me. How many ascomycetes have basidia? ;) So I thought they might be conidiophores, especially as the spores are very small. Here i...

Re: Unknown jelly fungus

Thanks Mal. What am I seeing in the scope? Are these conidia / conidiophores?

Re: Fungi for ID please

Could be Meottomyces dissimulans? Reminds me of it and it is a good winter species.

Re: Hygrocybe virginea?

I went for the LCMOS 5MP camera from Brunel and I've been delighted with it. It should be fine with your microscope, but check with them first. There is a 0.45x tube that screws on to fit the microscope (I'm sure they can provide this) http://www.brunelmicroscopes.co.uk/digitalmicroscopyl.html It mi...
