Hello,

just one which I like very much, though not found in Britain I suppose: Lyophyllum emiliae, one of the blackening Lyophyllum species, but this one first is yellow before becoming brown and then nearly blackish. Note also the abundant velvety felt at the stipe base ...

Found during my courses in Croatia every year since 2014 now, always in the first and second week of November.
The shown collection is from Istria, Zrenj, 03.11.2016, leg./det. Andreas Gminder 6 Cathrin Manz, pine forest (Pinus nigra) on Flysch soil, soc. Tricholoma focale, T. caligatum and other tricholomas, Hydnellum ferrugineum, Phellodon niger

best regards, Andreas

P.S.: I hope it's okay to post also finding from outside the UK here?

No problem. In any case, you never know what might appear in the UK. :)

Hallo Andreas
this reminds me of the colour change sequence in Dermoloma magicum which I have watched happen myself - is the chemistry similar?

Hello Chris,
I have no idea, to be honest .... I don't think that the chemistry leedig to this colour change has been investigated yet in either of the two ...

B.t.w., there is another Lyophyllum with this kind of colour change: Lyophyllum pulvis-horrei E. Ludw. - I found that two years ago, but the fotos and description is somewhere and I don't find them again ..... :?

best regards,
Andreas

This is a splat called Gloeocystidiellum porosum, which was found in Crab Wood near Winchester by one of the HFRG members. It has warty amyloid spores, which measured (5-7)*(3-4)um2, and with distinctive gloeocystidia.
