Re: Arable headland fungus

Many thanks Mike & Adam. You are, of course, right and I have kicked myself for overlooking Tubaria.

Thanks again, take care.

Arable headland fungus

This was found yesterday on the grass headland of an arable field adjacent to a brook with a wooded bank (mainly willow and ash). I suspected Laccaria but the spore print doesn't tally. Any suggestions to narrow it down would be welcome.

Re: Hebeloma?

Thank you Adam. Interesting, but I have a feeling that I need some more knowledge before understanding the article completely.

Re: Hebeloma?

Many thanks Adan and Chris! I've checked out the smell and bruising and am pretty sure that we are on the right track. I was particularly interested to learn that Hebeloma forms a mycorrhizal association with Arbutus . I've just finished reading Merlin Sheldrake's Entangled life which changed my per...

Hebeloma?

This was found growing on a grass lawn among fallen flowers of a strawberry tree (Arbutos unedo. Ericaceae). The cap is slimy when moist and the close up shows longitudinal fibrils on the stipe. The spore print seems to fit as 'rusty clay'. Could it be a Heboloma? Possibly H. mesophaeum?

Re: White fungus on moss

Thank you Adam. The pictures are taken with a Dino-Lite digital microscope and were the best that I could get of a rather difficult subject! It was always going to be a long shot, but your observation is greatly appreciated.

Re: Hebeloma or Hypholoma?

Thanks Chris, that was my sneaking suspicion. Yes, I can see from your link that the plot thickens, considerably, re Hebeloma. Take care.

Hebeloma or Hypholoma?

Is this Hebeloma (probably sinapizans) or, possibly, a washed out Hypholoma fasciculare? Or perhaps something entirely different? Thanks in advance for any insights.

White fungus on moss

This white fungus was found on the underside of a pleurocarp moss (on the clay bank of a deciduous woodland on 6 Oct). It's a bit of a long shot, but I wonder if anyone could help with its id - even a range of possibilities would be helpful. The moss is Thamnobryum alopecurum.

Re: Hypholoma query

Thanks Mike! It was a niggling doubt, but I think that they are both probably H. fasciculare.

Re: West London Agaricus?

Looks to me like Chlorophyllum (= Macroplepiota) rhacodes. Seems to be very abundant at the moment.

Hypholoma query

I found these two in conifer chippings amongst felled conifers a few days ago. I believe that they are Hypholoma but wonder if they are the same species demonstrating natural variation and, perhaps, different local conditions. (Top 2 are sp 1; Bottom 2 are sp 2.)
