Some very nice recent images, Mike ...

Yesterday's foray was tough terrain but rewarding. New for me and VC110 was Gomphidius glutinosus, the slimiest fungus I have yet encountered.

Cheers Chris.

I know we say only one named species, but these two, (both seen yesterday), are notable for parasitizing Russula nigricans.
I wanted to show them both together so that the differences can be seen.

Nice, Adam.

Not from today and not UK but interesting fungus Clathrus ruber in coastal Brittany. Known in France as Coeur de Sorcière, the Sorcerer's Heart ...a bit more prosaic than Red Cage :)
Seems to occur in coastal locations southern England, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands. Only 1 record in Glamorgan VC41 as far as I know - Caswell Bay, Gower

I would like to present my Fungi as a contender for Fungi of the day 'Sparassis laminosa'. I was thankful to the contributors to this forum in helping me identify this rare species; Of note I am a beginner to Fungi identification, I discovered this specimen (could not identify it using my mushroom e book) whilst roaming the woods in the Longleat forest, Wiltshire. Due to it being rare, I was subsequently advised to record it to my local group, unfortunately I have been unable to find a local group, help is appreciated?

Hi,

I would advise contacting the Cotswold Fungus Group: - http://www.cotswoldfungusgroup.com/ who cover the northern part of Wiltshire.

If they don't cover the area where your find was made, I'm sure they would be best placed to advise you of whom to contact.
Or, they may be able to accept and forward your record themselves. (If appropriate details are provided to them).

Regards,
Mike.

A while since I have had anything worth posting here. In Yorkshire it has been a dire year. I did a walk around a reclaimed rubbish tip and spotted what looked like a bit of Trametes on the path edge about 2" across. I expected buried wood but it was growing from the soil. I just put it in my pocket to look at later and when I did I was surprised to find a stipe or infact a few stipes. It turned out to be Coltrica confluens a smaller version of C parennis which grows with pine and individually. :D
