Can I have help identifiying these mushrooms?

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.

Can I have help identifiying these mushrooms?

Post by anders123 » Tue Aug 22, 2017 7:28 pm

Hi guys, I've just joined. I'm new to identifying mushrooms, although I've thought about it before and had a passing interest I only decided to start a few weeks ago.
Anyway I went to the local forest and took some pictures and a couple of samples where they were growing only in abundance. Anyway I think I can name a few but would like your opinions.
Of the samples I took I could attempt spore prints for some, but others have literally turned to liquid and one has maggots growing on it! (its been 3 days since I collected them and unfortunately with work I haven't been able to do anything with them till now, luckily they're in ziplock bags)
Thanks

Unfortunately keeping them for any length of time in poly bags (let alone for three days) is not a good idea with fleshy toadstool-like fungi.

Ah, sorry I just presumed I was doing good using an external host by saving the site's bandwidth. Will take a look at that, thanks.

It's nice to be able to search the site based on image etc, and also there is a certain risk with unknown links posted by new members of the site.

Welcome! I hope to see your images.
