Re: Found in garden bed

I agree with Adam. The series of photos gives an excellent account of the growth stages of this example. The fruitbody has the right looks for an Echinoderma, with nothing to suggest that it isn't. A shot of the entire underside of the cap looking at the gills (after the entirety of the partial veil...

Re: Clumps of this in our Garden

Hi, and welcome to the UK Fungi website. These are the fruiting bodies of one of the "Honey Fungus" - Armillaria species. Armillaria species perform a necessary and useful function in nature, but are generally considered as an unwelcome addition in most gardens! They grow directly on wood....

Re: Small brown discs on twig

Hi, and welcome to the UK Fungi website. I wouldn't be 100% certain without microscopy, but going on looks alone, I'd suggest your fungus might well be Rutstroemia firma - Brown Cup. The species is a "discomycete". Stalks can be variable in length from almost non existent to lengths longer...

Re: Found in garden bed

Hi, Great photos! The "veil" on the underside should "break" in the near future, and will then reveal the gills beneath. When it does, could you confirm the actual diameter of the cap, and the overall height of the fungus from soil to top? (It's often difficult to determine sizes...

Re: Chris Yeates

This comes as something of a shock - and very sad news indeed. As many viewers on here will know, Chris was an exceptionally knowledgeable mycologist, and as already mentioned, someone who was always willing to freely pass on that knowledge to anyone with genuine interest in fungi. Through several t...

Re: Cordyceps Like Unknown - ID Request

Update: - The samples were dried and sent off to Dr Paul Cannon. I am greatly indebted to Paul, who has carried out further microscopy etc, and has now confirmed that the find was indeed Trichoderma leucopus . The find has been accepted as the first verified record for Great Britain and Ireland, and...

Re: Found in garden bed

Hi, This looks like whatever it is, is just emerging, and will need to fully mature before any suggestions as to identification might be made. Those spines have the general looks of some sort of puffball, but I might be completely wrong!!! - It might well turn out to be a mushroom species. :oops: :D...

Re: Help with identity please

Hi, and welcome to the UK Fungi website.

I'd suggest Clitocybe nebularis - Clouded Agaric, for these.

Regards,

Hi and welcome to UK Fungi. The wording of your post suggests that you may reside outside the UK, (America?), and that you have tried or intended to include photos? If you are having difficulty in that regard, all the information you would need can be found here: - How to upload images & add the...

Re: Pretty little umbrella!

Hi, Good to see that you have been able to upload your photo. (It really isn't that difficult, and becomes second nature very quickly for anyone who posts a couple of times). With most fungi, and with just a single photo that only shows the top of the cap, it is seldom possible to give confident spe...
