Re: Orange/yellow fungi

Hi, The top three photos have the general looks of Galerina graminea - Turf Bell The next four photos have some similarity in general looks and gill structure to Tubaria furfuracea - Scurfy Twiglet, but I'm by no means certain. Knowing what substrate mushrooms are growing on is a very useful charact...

Re: crust on hazel

Hi, Don't take this as being a certainty, as I'm not very good with crusts either - but to me, this has the general look of Schizopora paradoxa - Split Crust. Basidioradulum radula - Toothed Crust looks quite similar too, (but I think that one often has teeth more akin to Hedgehog Fungus). I think m...

Re: Orange fungi by Poplars

Hi, and welcome to the UK Fungi website. The fallen leaves in your photo look like Black Poplar, which is a quite rare broadleaf tree in the UK, noted for its affinity with boggy ground. The substantial amount of moss in your photos does suggest that the ground in that area may be somewhat boggy. Yo...

Re: Cladonia sp

. . . RBG Edinburgh produced a cheapish one for fungal spore prints, but I don't think it is available any more. . . Hi, Just browsing the site and happened to spot your comment. The spore colour chart you mention, (originally published in 1969), is actually still in print. - Available from several...

Re: Odd looking hoof fungus

Hi, I'm tempted to suggest Ganoderma applanatum (Artist's Bracket), although your fruit bodies are, (in Ganoderma lifespan terms), still very young and small, and more confident identification would need larger, more mature fruitbodies (and/or microscopy). My reasoning for suggesting G.applanatum, i...

Re: I think these are

. . . I have read them… no I’m not planning on eating them . . . I will give you the benefit of the doubt!! ;) :D - but I hope you can see where my concerns came from. - Several identical large fruitbodies on what potentially looks like it could be a kitchen worktop, and someone asking whether they...

Re: I think these are

. . . I found this cluster just about to be destroyed by gardener on our caravan site. So saved. . . Hmmm! - saved with what purpose in mind! - I hope that you have read the forum rules at the top of the page! Oyster mushrooms - asymmetrical fan shaped caps with stem off to one side - white to grey...

Re: Odd looking hoof fungus

Hi, and welcome to the UK Fungi website. You fungus is one of the Ganoderma species, but I think it would be impossible to get a confident ID at this stage with photographs alone. Probably best to keep an eye on its progress and take more photos "as and when". Good, well focussed, close up...

Re: Yew fungus

Hi Mark, I just spootted a post on the British Mycological Society Facebook page, with a photo of a Yew aril with what looks to be a very similar fungus attack to that shown in your photos: - https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10163382929892627&set=gm.10159075258996619&idorvanity=188437416...
