Are these Shanklet ?

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.

Are these Shanklet ?

Post by Wood Wanderer » Tue Aug 22, 2017 6:12 pm

Hi all

I am reasonably confident that these are one of the Shanklets but would appreciate confirmation.

I have ruled out C. cookei as there is no sign of a yellowish sclerotium but have no real idea how to decide between C. tuberosa and C. cirrhata

They are quite small at less than 0.5 cm across and were growing through moss under spruce, they appear to be arising from a sclerotium but not certain.

Can anyone offer an opinion


Regards

John

Reason: no need to use inline attachments in this case

Looks like one of those; what's that yellow thing in the 3rd image?

Well spotted Roy, have now taken my sample apart and found the yellow sclerotium from which they are growing, so I guess they are most likely C. cookei ...
