Nicely done.

Is there a reason for starting a new 'Fungus of the Day' thread?

Regards, Chris
Thanks. That's a good point - I just clicked on the one above, without realising it was a new thread. Perhaps Adam can sort this one?

Re: Fungus of the day

Not the most exotic of toadstools, though it's always pleasant to have one which can be named confidently in the field, thanks to its habitat and the distinctive silvery sheen on the stipes, which rubs of with age and handling. This was photographed in an area not far from one which was clear felled...

Re: Small Brown Fungus

Hi Chris, Don't know if you will have seen it already, but there is another Tephrocybe key in addition to Moser, that's available as PDF download if you have electronic access to BMS Journals: - "The Genus Tephrocybe Donk in Britain, PD Orton. - Bulletin of the British Mycological Society - Volume ...

Re: Foray Today

A macro of the pores would be interesting, as I suppose that they are not round as in a Trametes or Postia species, but lacerate as e.g. in Climacocystis boreali s. The foto reminds me of the latter, but I don't know its distribution in GB and can not judge whether this possible at all. And it woul...

Re: Not so much the species, more…

As you say, based on colour - and particularly with that very distinct umbo - I would certainly call this Mycena rosea.
You don't mention habitat; I see what may be a beech leaf? That would point towards M. rosea as well . . .

Re: Help with identification.

Although young, these brackets are clearly developing pores - so not Pseudohydnum, an altogether different fungus, gelatinous etc.
Given the general appearance and habitat I would suggest immature Postia subcaesia, also known as Oligoporus subcaesius and Tyromyces subcaesius

Re: Oysterlings

A proper gill shot would indeed be useful - a few quick snaps are often simply not enough. If you have a look at the specimens over towards the left they appear to have a brown spore deposit: a spore print would be conclusive . If the fungus has brown spores it can't be a Panellus . If the caps had ...

Re: Mycena?

Hi Andrew do read this: http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 surely it's fair to spend a little more time getting further details, when you're asking for others' time? Based on the limited info I can glean here I would (tentatively) suggest Mycena arcangeliana , was it growing on wood/twig...

Re: Beige/grey woodland mushrooms. Pale yellow gills. Blewits?

Why did you collect so many of them? Also, in general, if one wants an ID the fungus needs to be collected more carefully than has been the case here.

Re: Distribution of European Pear Rust

Hi Jerry
I'll keep an eye open, I don't come across many pear trees - though I'm sure I saw nothing on a tree I noticed in suburban Huddersfield a week ago.
To give people an idea of what they are looking for:
Gymnosporangium sabinae 0a.jpg
