Re: Wood Blewit and its lookalike

Checking my Fungi of Temperate Europe, C.purpurascens is described as being found mostly in conifer forests. It also lists C. subpurpurascens as associated with deciduous forests. It looks more like Cortinarius suaveolens but says this is very rare and has a characteristic smell of cherry leaves (li...

Re: Can't identify this fungi

By the way, fungi is the plural and fungus is the singular. So it can be "this fungus" or "these fungi" - saying "this fungi" is like saying "this dogs." When you have several fruit bodies growing from one mycelium, the individual is the mycelium, not the fruit bodies, so you would say "this fungus"...

Re: Can't identify this fungi

Welcome to Uk Fungi. It's not a Liberty Cap and it doesn't have a petticoat so not sure why you think it's that. If you look at the example in the link, it has veil remnants around the edge of the cap like a petticoat. https://www.first-nature.com/fungi/panaeolus-papilionaceus.php It is one of the P...

Re: Webcap??

You're more likely to find Cortinarius in ancient woodland. Its mycorrihizal and certain trees are more mycorrhizal than others. Pine, Oak, Hazel, Birch, Alder, Beech - best Spruce, Larch - also pretty good Sycamore, Ash, Chestnut, Horse Chestnut, Firs, Plane Trees, Yew - little or no mycorrhizal as...

Re: Webcap??

Its a common mistake to confuse a Honey Fungus with Cortinarius. I used to do it too. A couple of ways to distinguish, one is the brown spores of Cortinarius, which can be often seen on more mature specimens as a deposit on the stem or by a spore print. Also, the scaliness on the cap is a sign. Afte...

Re: Help to ID-Blewit?

Why do you think they are Blewitts of all things? No sign of blue that I can see.

Re: Help identify this fungi

You should see some blue / violet tone. When mushrooms are old or washed out, this may disappear. As is the cas ewith any old or washed out fungi, ID is often impossible and they are best ignored. Post the photos (in a separate post) and we might be able to help. :)

Re: Hebeloma or Hypholoma?

It's a washed out Hypholoma fasciculare ; and Hebeloma now is an even more tricky genus than we thought it before: https://www.summerfieldbooks.com/product/hebeloma-fungi-europaei-vol-14/ that runs in at over 1200 pages - and there's now a supplement (another 470 pages)! Can't do them in the field ...
