looking for a couple id’s or help with I’d.

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.

Ok so firstly, I didn’t pick any of these beside I didn’t have anything to carry them home in so don’t have spore prints.


This first one is growing in leafy soil beneath a beach tree

These little guys where growing on an old beach trunk that had fallen years ago. They are the slimiest little mushrooms I’ve ever handled.

And this one I suspected was a Russula but I’m not 100% sure.

Firstly, welcome to UK Fungi! :D

The quality (and lobsidedness) of the photos of the first one makes it a bit hard to be sure.
EDIT- It's an Amanita and I think Amanita citrina.

The second one *might* be young Porcelain fungus - Oudemansiella mucida

The 3rd is indeed a Russula but these are tricky to ID to species and quite a lot of info is required including taste, chemical tests and microscopy otherwise it's basically guesswork.

Thanks for your reply.

I thought it may of been Amanita the woods are full of them of all colors but being white I wasn’t sure...

I’ll look up porcelain fungus thanks!!

And I didn’t realize russulas where soo hard to Id which species it is.

There are soo many mushrooms in these hills. I just wish I knew someone near by with the knowledge to teach me more and go on hunts with...

You can fill in your profile with your area and it helps get people to meet up. Surely there is a fungus recording group near you? Its really fun to go on forays and any genuine recording group will have knowledgeable people there.
