Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I'm sure you and Adam will get there in the end. The image in the previous post is probably of Tubaria confragosa; that is based on general colour, time of year, and a lot of experience. It doesn't really have enough information to be certain however - seeing the fungus in its habitat, what was it growing on, more than one fruitbody (this is well developed and younger ones may show signs of a veil etc.).

Have a good read through viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 - at least you have provided the info in red capitals in this instance ;)

Hi,

Obviously, as Adam has confirmed above, there is something amiss with the website's software at the moment.

It looks like you've exhausted most possibilities for trying to upload your photos, but it might just be worthwhile having one more go.

About three weeks back, I uploaded multiple images in a single post, and had several problems doing so.

I was using my usual method of uploading an attachment, previewing the post, then editing the text of my post to describe that particular photo, then doing the same again for my next photo, and so on.
After which, all things being well, and when I was happy with the overall "finished" post, I would have finally clicked the "Submit" tab.

However, several times during the previewing/editing of text process, the uploaded attachments just disappeared, or left only the last one uploaded.

I thought at the time that there was some sort of "one-off" type of glitch, but seeing that your problems in image uploading are very similar, I'm now wondering whether I was experiencing the same "bug" in the system.

I did eventually find a way around the problem at the time, by completely editing and finalising the body text of my post, before uploading all the attachments one after the other (giving each a short name in the comments box) and then, immediately clicking the "Submit" tab.

I did not, after starting to "add the attachments", edit or type any more text whatsoever in the post, nor did I then preview the post, but simply clicked on the "Submit" tab once all my intended images were showing on the attachments list.
That did the trick, and my images were correctly uploaded and visible at the bottom of my post on the actual forum.

As mentioned, I thought at the time it was a one-off sort of problem, and no one has mentioned any similar upload problems in the interim - but just maybe my experience was the same thing that's happening with your attempted uploads.

Regards,
Mike.

EDIT
- PS: (For Adam) - it's noticeable recently, when I'm uploading a post (whether it contains images or just text), that it's taking a considerable amount of time between clicking the "Submit" tab, and the post appearing on the forum (maybe 30 seconds or more).
Until recently, uploading a post happened within a second or two - not much longer than just browsing from page to page around the website.
Perhaps something related to the overall issue?
Common sense is not so common.

Hello,

@Chris: Did you mean Tubaria dispersa? T. confragosa has a ring and much darker colours.

best regards,
Andreas

Why not T. furfuracea...
From the 'minature' images on the screen shot, 2 & 3 look like Ink Caps.

Sorry for the delay. Been down with the flu and stopped thinking about photos!

I'll try one at a time - might be easier that way.

Image 2 - possible id of Lycoperdon pyriforme or ink caps from miniature image

Also, Chris mentioned about reading the minimum for id needed - as I put in my first post, the thought of identifying them didn't cross my mind at the time, so I didn't comply with this unfortunately. If I do this in the future I'll make sure I get it from all the angles.

Image 5

(Image 6 was the one that worked already (sulphur tuft toadstools Hypholoma fasciculare)

So hopefully that's all 6 images now working :) Thanks for looking, and please don't worry if IDs not possible because I didn't take photos of the right parts.

Coming back to this one briefly. I must have had a blank moment - I meant Tubaria furfuracea. Though T. dispersa would, I agree, also be in the mix . . .
