Re: Fungus Identification - Rustgill?

Could well be, - but in order to get any meaningful ID suggestions you need to provide as much detail as possible, along with photographs showing all the characteristics that might be required. A single photo without accompanying detail will very seldom allow any confident identification suggestions...

Re: I.D request

Photos 1 to 3 - No suggestion. More details & photos of relevant characteristics, & probably microscopy would be required for a positive ID. Photos 4 & 5 - One of the coprophilous inkcap species. More details & photos of relevant characteristics, & probably microscopy would be re...

Re: Cordyceps Like Unknown - ID Request

I decided to post an identification request on AscoFrance, and received a positive reply of Trichoderma leucopus within minutes. http://www.ascofrance.com/forum?page=1&id=77046 Looking at photos and info for that species, I'm pretty confident that they are correct. I can't seem to find any UK re...

Re: Cordyceps Like Unknown - ID Request

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion, but these definitely aren't any form of Macrotyphula fistulosa . - ( M.fistulosa is a basidiomycete, and these are ascomycete). I left the fruitbodies sitting on a microscope slide overnight, and they produced a very substantial white spore drop. Under the microscope, ...

Cordyceps Like Unknown - ID Request

I'd be very grateful if anyone could suggest a species (or even a genus) for these. Found yesterday in the middle of an isolated deciduous area, (mainly Beech & Birch), in Gisburn Forest. (A moorland Spruce plantation in north west England). Around 20 to 30 individual fruitbodies varying in size...

Re: Tricholomopsis rutilans?

Hi, No. - This is Cortinarius bolaris - (Dappled Webcap). If you aren't certain of a species, it is always a good idea to take a spore print. Doing so can often rule-in or rule-out species that might be potentially confusing. particularly to someone just starting out in fungi identification. Trichol...

Agreed, (and to me, considering the various background debris that's visible, they also look larger than the stated <1cm.).

Re: Is this Fungi?, and if so, what kind?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. These are the remains of one of the "phallus" species of fungi, after it has fully matured and the insect attracting "gleba" has completely been removed. (More than likely by flies). You don't give any information on size of these fruitbodies, and it ...

Re: Is this fungi..?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi website. This isn’t a fungus; it’s a slime mould (myxomycete). It has the densely clustered habit of a Stemonitis species, but the individual sporocarps we see here don’t look tall enough. They look more like a Stemonitopsis – but Stemonotopsis doesn’t appear so densely c...
