Re: Today's finds - East Devon

Hello,

hmm, I won't insist in this one, may be you are right, Chris. But I have never seen scaly stems on Armillaria.
Very sad that there is no possibility to see a spore print, I'd bet it is brown ... (and loose perhaps ;) )

best regards, Andreas

Re: Today's finds - East Devon

Hello,

well spotted! I think it is Stropharia squamosa, nowadays called Leratiomyces (or Stropholoma) squamosa.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

Hello,

I'd stick to dried out Chondrostereum purpureum.
For Auricularia mesenterica the fruitbodies are too thin i my opinion, and usually they grow larger when they are that old that they make "caps" and they are most often on naked wood rather than on lichen colonized bark.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Possible Hygrophoropsis hypothejus

Re: Upgrade

Hello, having now recognized that the tucan frame changes to red when new posts are in a theme, I personally have no problems with the design any more. I think you changed the back colour to grey or made it somewhat more pleasant to look at (for my eyes ...) and now I would be quite happy with the t...

Re: ID help please

Hello, I'm pretty certain that this is the Anamorph of Ascocoryne solitaria, called Sirobasidium cerasi. For those interested in Microscopy a very nice object because it has conidiophors that look similar to basidia of Tulasnella. If I find my pcitures of it, I will post them later ..... best regard...

Re: Galerina sp

Dear Adam,

I can see the remnants of the ring structure on your last foto. It is membranaceous and not cob-like, so the fruitbody had a ring in younger days ....

Re: Galerina sp

Hello Adam, I asked this question to myself also several times with Galerina collections - sometimes there are so many capitate cystidia that one is really struggeling. But in your case it is clear that they are NOT tibiiform. First of all, because so many cystidia are not. In the key with tibiiform...

Re: Clavarioid fungus on liverwort

Dear Sebastian, most probably a Clavaria species, but of the european species is confined to liverworth as far as I know. May be a Typhula, but they are usually not that slender. Are you certain, that it really contacts the liverworth or might it just grow through it from the soil beneath? Anyway, b...
