Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Flammulina velutipes , Velvet shank on a stump on Fishchowters Lane, Totnes yesterday.

Any ideas?

Hi fellow mycologists I'm sure ,like me, that some of your friends send you random fungi photographs for you to identify. Mostly they seem to be Armilleria but quite often (like this one) there's not enough detail to give a good answer. I've mentioned several times about getting a picture of the und...

Ceracea are cells are much shorter and slightly branched (subregular) and Chlorophana long thin cells (like spaghetti) As to qui...
