Re: is the cap of a Hygrocybe conica always conical?

Hi, I thought acutoconica didn't blacken? (didn't they used to be called persistens?) Boertmann tends to lump all conica together as a "complex" But there is olivaceonigra in his book (which I've never seen) that blackens and has bigger spores. If there was any chance that one of these FBs had been ...

Re: ID please

That's it ! Well done. It's easy to mistake fruit for fungi at a distance. I've looked over the gate at fields with lots of Hygrocybe coccinea that proved to be Hawthorn berries close up. But not being attached to the ground was a clue. Still we all make mistakes and at least now we know what Dogwoo...

Re: ID help fungus on silage bales

That's interesting. I had some pictures taken some years ago of a fruiting body growing under the wrap and stretching it presumably until it split. Sadly I can't find them (lost on another computer somewhere). However it makes sense that the FB would start to grow under a small hole because of the c...

Re: ID help fungus on silage bales

Definitely Split Gill
A real problem on big bale silage as it grows inside then punches through the wrap.

First recorded in Ireland ,I think.

Re: Golden Waxcap Hygrocybe chlorophana

There's a lot of waxcap keys out there including https://www.aber.ac.uk/waxcap/what/key-main.shtml https://sxbrc.org.uk/recording/keys/waxcaps/ and many more Unfortunately they won't help ...

Re: sand dune fungi

Pembrokeshire fungi recording group published a good little book on Dune Fungi but I don't know if they have any left. https://www.pembsfungi.org.uk/ and there's a French book "Le petit livre des Champignons des dunes" by Jacques Guinbertau https://www.amazon.co.uk/petit-livre-champignons-dunes/dp/2...
