Re: ID help for a complete Fungi newbie

Given that you only have this one photograph there are several options. One is a Flammulina, the most common being F. velutipes which would have a dark and maybe velvety stem. These would be quite old specimens. They are a good one to look out for at this time of year, the can be velvety or slimy on...

The above look like Boletus edulis at full growth.

Re: Greenroof fungi

It looks more like a Slime Mould than and fungus.
I've seen a lot of Mucilago crustecea in grassland this year, much more than usual. Maybe the wet weather.

Re: Yellow Fieldcap Bolbitius titubans

The more knowledgeable have not replied so I will put in my two-penneth.

Re: Fungi Id

For the first you could look at Tricholoma species.
The third may well be Hairy Curtain Crust (Stereum hirsutum)

Re: Yellow fungi please identify

I agree with Mal and I'd also push the boat out and say that it is Parrot Waxcap. Once the green has gone it turns this particular shade of yellow, has a striate edge and when wet is very slimy. If you turn it over and look at the very top of the stem you should still be able to see a hint of green ...

Re: What are these?

The shiny dark one looks like Slimy Waxcap (Hygrocybe irrigata now Gliophorus irrigatus)

Re: suillus ? Larch or slipper jack?

What I can see of the stipe says this is a Leccinum.
There are some with paler caps.
L. holopus can flush green at the cap edge when older and is associated with Birch.
That might be the case here but it's not clear.

Re: Amber Jelly or Jelly ear?

Fungi can be specific to a host so it's always useful to see what the host is. Maybe you could add an image of the leaves. The rough flaking bark with decortication and moss covering that we can see in the first image looks very much like Elder so if it isn't then I'm intrigued to see what the tree ...

Re: Unusual mushroom with dark red liquid

It looks like the bracket Fistulina hepatica - Beefsteak Fungus.
Usually found growing on Quercus (Oak).
This may have snapped off.

Re: Amber Jelly or Jelly ear?

Some of these don't look like typical Jelly Ears but others do.
The tree looks to be Elder from what I can see and that is a common host of Jelly Ear.
Amber Jelly is usually found on Willow.
