Re: Members resources

If anyone would like an Excel recording sheet with dropdowns for habitat, literature source etc, here is one I made. Just change the names for recorders, etc.

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...

Re: Vocabulary

Excellent post, Mal. I've also posted a sticky on literature and resources on general fungi, not covered in a sub-forum. No doubt it needs adding to!

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, ...

Re: Rust of the day!

This was by a clump of old broad-leaved trees in the Preselis and the nettle was covered in rust. Is it too early to see stages II and III on the Carex host? My old LX5 camera is not focussing properly, so this is with a Lumix TZ35. Although it only focuses to 3cm, wheras the LX5 *should* focus to 1...

Re: Unidentified Fungi Object (UFO)

Without a microscope, a spore print can help, as an Entoloma should leave a pink one (usually more of a light brown, but there is a hint of pink, more of a salmon pink) Its likely to be a microscopy job in any case, I'm afraid, although someone more knowledgable might suggest something :)
