like an immature fly agaric, but white

Found this at Cloud woods in north west Leicestershire which is mixed deciduous woods, clay and Kuyper marl , marshy in parts on the edge of a quarry. Looks like a very immature fly agaric but I don't think there's any in there as I haven't seen any and and its in an area where there are birch and p...

Re: milkcap/ funnel or false/chanterelle but gills barely there

Thanks.
I like the way wild food uk describes it as not strictly poisonous but can cause alarming symptoms in some people.
Think I had a picture of another nearby with better defined gills.

milkcap/ funnel or false/chanterelle but gills barely there

Found these in NW Leicestershire in deciduous woodland on the edge of a granite quarry amongst brambles with shaggy parasols nearby. Look like milk caps or funnels from above but the gills seem too vestigial for even false or real chanterelles. Birches and oak in the area as there were fly agarics a...

Re: some sort of Agaricaceae ?

Thanks. I missed that one as the site I use for local stuff had pictures that on a cursory inspection looked like one of the variety with tufts rather than the irregular surface.

some sort of Agaricaceae ?

side of track in mixed woodland in NW Leicestershire amongst deciduous .
Was thinking wood mushroom but not sure if the uneven top surface is due to decay or one of the parasols

suillus ? Larch or slipper jack?

found this in north west Leicestershire at a site of mixed heath and woodland near a boundary wall with predominantly silver birch but conifers on the other side in a wood.
This looks like a bolete but seems rather pale for a Birch Bolete so thought maybe Larch and there are slippery jacks around

Re: Amber Jelly or Jelly ear?

Thanks.
I was uncertain as it seemed to lack any structure and was more floppy than the jelly ears I've seen so far
Its not an elder as the leaves are more like holly leaves texturally , but long oval to a point.

earthstars

went walking along an old railway line turned nature trail in north west Leicestershire looking for earthstars and found quite a few. Collared I think including one with almost a full set of points. But then one seemed quite large, possibly 6-7 cm across the central sphere. Descriptions say upto 5 c...

Amber Jelly or Jelly ear?

Found it on some sort of ever green tree/shrub with glossy dark leaves near a series of iron polluted flashes in North west Leicestershire. Translucent jelly that wobbles if shaken so was thinking amber jelly unless jelly ear is very soft initially Here's a video demonstrating just how wobbly the st...

Re: shaggy scalycap ?

Hmm well there are Cystoderma amianthinum in that location but then the surface is reminiscent of the earthballs texture wise but there are a few pictures showing that sort of texture on a Cystoderma amianthinum.
Thanks
