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...

Re: Yew fungus

. . . I have PM'd Chris Yeates. . . Hi Mark, You must not yet be aware that sadly, Chris recently died. (Apparently from a heart attack). See: - https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?t=4098 A tragic loss for his family and friends, and a major loss to the entire mycological community. I think ther...

Re: Yew fungus

Hi Mark, I think this is still flying under the radar (after 30+ views) because no one has any ideas on what it might be. I was hoping that someone like Paul Cannon may have spotted the topic and might possibly have had suggestions. I've had a look through my books and can't find anything that might...

Re: Bisporella citrina (re Dacrymycetaceae post)

Hi Bob,

With this colour and their overall general macro looks, I'd be more than happy to identify them as Bisporella citrina without even considering microscopy.
They look spot on.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Dacrymycetaceae?

Hi, Nice shots! These have some similarity (in general looks) to Bisporella citrina . - Which does fall within the Dacrymycetaceae category, but which would generally be referred to as a "Discomycete". Dacrymyces species (sensu stricto) are commonly referred to as "Jelly Fungi" d...

Re: New Member

I have moved your post to this (Website Discussion) forum, since instead of starting a new topic, you had effectively hijacked the existing "A Glossary of Mycological Terms" topic in the FAQS/Member Resources forum, for which the content of your post would be entirely off topic. To be clea...

Re: Can anyone identify? Please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Potentially Honey Fungus, but the photos don't show enough characteristics. (Top shots of clumps of mushrooms rarely do). Good, well focussed close up shots of top of cap, side view of entire stem, shot of underside of cap showing the gills, and showing how the gills are...

Re: Fungi Identification

. . . I am first and formost a photographer and all that I wish to do is name my photographs of fungi correctly . . . That's exactly how I first became interested in fungi. :D You can often get identification to genus level from photos - as here with Mycena. Unfortunately though, as I soon discover...
