Re: Unknown bracket grows only on Ash in my woods

Thanks for the confirmation, this was only listed in one of my books and the shaggy bit was in the back of my mind as something I had read before.

Re: Unknown bracket grows only on Ash in my woods

The only thing I did think it could be was Shaggy bracket, Inonotus hispidus

Unknown bracket grows only on Ash in my woods

Along with my last post after a busy weekend another interesting bracket, I have only ever found old samples which always appear to be dropped from Ash trees and completely soaked, this has a furry topside and leaves a brown residue when handling. over the coming year I will be keeping an eye out bu...

Weekend fun some I think I know

With the recent wind and rain the fungi in my woods have gone crazy and I have found a few other new finds which some I think I have identified correctly and others it's more of a guess. First off I believe is Yellow Brain, Tremella mesenterica this was a very small example at only 10cm in size and ...

Re: Cudoniella acicularis Oak Pin question

Thanks. I missed the lack of gills in the pinhead.
Had a fun weekend with the recent rain and high winds found quite a few more new finds, so far I'm up to 57 different fungi in my woodland

Re: Cudoniella acicularis Oak Pin question

Thanks, never realised how small fungi can be.
Is the first image also a Mycena?

Cudoniella acicularis Oak Pin question

I first came across this on Saturday on a piece of Ash which also had cramp balls and jelly spot growing on it, since then I have found two other similar fungi on oak. First thoughts was Cudoniella acicularis but as these are so small any help on confirming or suggesting other possibilities would be...

Re: Three new fungi , which I have probably got wrong

No worries about the scientific names, I tend to use both only because for me just starting out I find it hard to get used to.
I do check both as some common names can be used in a specific region and not used in other places.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Re: Three new fungi , which I have probably got wrong

Thanks for the ID, I find it hard to get to grips with the scientific names but trying. So the first two are not what I expected and as most books I find always tend to be slightly different in appearance especially the Collins in this instance. I seem to be getting a few Oysterlings in the woods bu...

Re: Literature for Grasses, Sedges, Rushes, Ferns

I use A Field Guide to Grasses, Sedges and Rushes by Dominic Price.
Not bad as a starting point and appears to be well laid out but can still be fun matching some of the images to samples you are looking at.

This is produced by the species recovery trust and there does not seem to be an ISBN number

Three new fungi , which I have probably got wrong

Had a good weekend finding a few new specimens including Oak Pin which was completely by chance. I have these three below that I think I know what they may be but with my lack of experience I've probable got them wrong lol. With the closing weather I did not manage to take any home for spore prints....
