Stereopsis reidii

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.

Stereopsis reidii

Post by MykoGolfer » Tue Apr 03, 2018 6:12 pm

I posted this last year as a possible Cotylidia found at Ainsdale Sand Dunes NNR. Since then, specimens have been sent to Dr. A. Martyn Ainsworth at Kew. For the time being, it is recorded on the Fungariun Database as Stereopsis reidii. BUT THIS NOT CONFIRMED. It is awaiting sequencing. If it is, it would be a first British record and I am told it is rare for Europe. I shall keep you informed.
