Re: Little sordid agaric under pine

As no-one has replied Adam, I'll suggest it's one of those anonymous late season Clitocybes.
Hygrophanous cap without aeriferous covering, 'large' spores, smell unknown: it might even be C. fragrans !

Re: Cort, Hebeloma or something else

Looks familiar somehow! I would call the spore print cream to yellowish which doesn't suggest either Hebeloma or Cortinarius (although under the microscope they appear more brown). Hebeloma should have obvious cystidia, so I'd agree it may be a Cortinarius. Something like C. ochroleucus has spores a...

Re: Tiny parasols

Welcome. Most 'Coprinus' need microscopic examination to get to species level. From your image, the stem does not appear smooth which would rule out a Parasola. The next step is to examine the cap to see if it has cystidia or a veil composed either of elongate or globose cells. Coprinopsis radiata i...

Re: Unknown Mycenoid

An image of the gills is not essential, but you do need to look at them! A description of the gills is good enough: their colour, attachment, with a coloured edge?, distant or crowded? The spore shape suggests Mycena rather than Hemimycena. With a powdery cap and stem it could be tenerrima or coryne...

Re: Fungi ID please

Occasionally a fungus can be identified by an image... more often than not, some more basic info. is required. I would say image 3 is Pholiota squarrosa. 2, given the size, maybe well be Clitocybe geotropa (need to see gill attachment) - often these grow in groups or rings. 1 may be a Pluteus sp.: a...

Re: Blue-staining mushroom

..... or caerulea ! In the key in FAN6 they are separated by the gill edge being white ( pseudocyanea ) or concolorous ( caerulea ). The descriptions suggest that pseudocyanea prefers more acid soils and is more likely to lose it's blue-green colouration when mature. Your specimens give a mixed mess...

Re: Blue-staining mushroom

I'd be looking at 'washed out' specimens of Stropharia pseudocyanea or caerulea.

Re: What is this fungis Id?

I agree with Chris - it looks like a Clitocybe. If the location was the UK, with the darkening towards the stipe base, I might suggest C. metachroa (but I've no idea if this species occurs in Turkey).

Re: Unidentified Fungus

It is possible this is Lyophyllum decastes which usually grows in clusters like this and has a similar coloured cap and stem.

Re: Wax Cap?

It's one of the Armillaria spp. (Honey Fungus). Might be the reason for the dead trees!
