Rustgill maybe?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Rustgill maybe?

Post by Helix » Mon Sep 07, 2020 9:18 pm

Hello folks. I found this one a few days ago growing under a Rowan, quite close to the trunk. The cap was about 10cm diameter and the stripe about 12cm long. Striking orange cap. It had a bald ring for want of a better description on the stripe as can be seen in one of the pics. Was this a rustgill?

Thanks in advance

James

It's a bit gone over, but look at Phaeolepiota aurea. It could also be a rustgill - Gymnopilus spectabilis, but you'd expect to see a scalier cap although these might have been washed away.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Adam, I think it possibly was a rustgill but as you say it was passed its prime. Will keep my eyes peeled for next year.
