Hi,
Hopefully this is in the right place :lol:
I have a few images to share now that the hectic surveys are done.
This is Russula rosea I believe, which has of course been given other names eg R. lepida. I think I used Geoffrey Kibby's guide.
It was under Beech in a Sheffield wood I've known for 50 years, but never looked at closely for fungi. Although a bit spattered with mud, it was amongst a small troop otherwise undisturbed despite being on a pathside.

Another one which I don't often find at a young stage was this Russula nigricans in a large troop under Beech. It was in the same wood as the previous find, and similarly undisturbed.

NB Does this site have a gallery like WAB had? :?:

Hapalopilus nidulans - Cinnamon Bracket or Tender Nesting Polypore

This is one which no-one is likely to get wrong if they have a drop of KOH. The colour reaction is stunning. I found it for the first time in a North East Derbyshire woodland Oct 2015.

Cheers Mike,
Looks like there's only one place where it's been found in all the woods round Sheffield - and I've been looking at 1000's of polypores in Longshaw over 2 years (52 day long surveys) and not seen it.
The KOH reaction is just amazing :)

Not a rarity by any means but worth a close look:
