Identification help

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.
Forum rules
Please do not ask for the identification of fungi for edibility or narcotic purposes. Any help provided by forum members is on the understanding that fungi are not to be consumed. Any deaths or serious poisonings are the responsibility of the person eating or preparing the fungus for others. If it is apparent from a post that the fungus is for eating or smoking etc, the post will be deleted and a warning given. Although many members do eat fungi, no-one would be willing to take someone else's life into their hands.

Identification help

Post by sazml » Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:27 pm

The attachment DSC_0065.jpg is no longer available
Found around 5 of these growing in Scottish woodland just under the surface of a layer of pine needles.
The attachment DSC_0066.jpg is no longer available
The attachment DSC_0067.jpg is no longer available
when we removed one to check if it had a stalk it pulled a fibrous "root" from the soil.
The attachment DSC_0070.jpg is no longer available
within half a meter of the group was another fungus perhaps related to the group perhaps an older specimen?

Hi Sazml
Welcome to the forum. With only one (rather blurred) picture it is difficult to be sure but it looks like a Stink Horn Phallus impudicus.

and it takes a millennia for posts to be verified so i kinda gave up on it and went to facebook where i joined a community there and got replies within minutes rather than here wait millennia for admin to approve my posts before waiting for people to reply.

Hi sazml,

Sorry that you have had this experience with UK Fungi website.

We generally try our very best to help people with genuine enquiries, and there are some very knowledgeable contributors here.

Unfortunately, your initial post suffered from the "multiple image uploading problem" that was creating similar problems for many of UK Fungi's members. (Thankfully, it appears that as of today, that problem has been resolved!).

As for your inability to make posts - I'm at a loss to explain that.
Normally, once a new member has been verified as making genuine fungi related post, and had the initial post approved by admin, they should then be able to post to the forum as normal. Why you could not do that is a mystery to me.

Hopefully, Adam, (Site Administrator) will see this and make further comment.

Regards,
Mike.

Sorry that you've had problems with post approval. This is there to stop spammers, who regularly target small independent, not-for-profit, run by volunteer websites. I pay for this out of my pocket and put in my time because I enjoy the hobby. There are no adverts.

Normally, only the first two posts require admin approval but if you post more than 2 posts before an admin has approved the first two, they will all need approval. Mike (Lancashire Lad) says your account was showing as inactive (now marked as active) I have no idea why it did that.
The image posting issue was caused by a bug in the forum software (not yet fixed in the official release, but it had a fix, which I enabled)

Anyway, I think you will find it easy to use in the future. Facebook has some good points, but they own your images (I dont claim ownership of your copyright) plus its not organised in a hierarchical "tree-like" structure, so it can be hard to find a post you made a week ago, let along a couple of months ago. Here, that is easy.

Regards
Adam Pollard

Is millenia perhaps a slight exaggeration - thousands of years? Yes Facebook is very attractive -the Coca Cola of websites (I can't stand the stuff), but I gave up on those attractions because if you delve a little deeper . . . plus I resent the way these internet behemoths effectively stalk you,nick data, pass it on to all and sundry, I could go on.

Well done Adam - thanks for all your work and for keeping UK Fungi independent :) .
