Re: Collybia Dryophila parasite?

Hello,

as far as I know this is all host tissue, deformed like a gall by the parasite who only develops hymenial structures within the host tissue.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Collybia Dryophila parasite?

Hello,

in my opinion this is without doubt a Syzygospora species parasiting a Gymnopus dryophilus s.l., but without microscopical examination one can't tell which of the species of Syzygospora it is.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Discomycete

Hello, if those are the spores belonging to the fungus, and not conidia, it seems likely that it is a Lachnum species. IF it is a Lachnum, then we would need for determination: - size of the spores - oil content of the spores - croziers at the ascus base yes/no - paraphyses (and hairs) without conte...

Re: Fungus on calcareous soil, W Crete

Hello, Russula, as Flaxton says. But without further details on at least taste and colour of the spore print there is not much to do. One could start a little guessing game, but we will never know if somebody is right and who. It reminds me much on Russula maculata, and as the fruitbody tends to get...

Re: Discomycete

Hello, impossible to say anything from foto, even if it would be a high resolution macro-foto. It might be a Lachnum or Dasyscyphella, it might be a Cyathicula, a Calycina - it mght as well be a cyphelloid basidiomycete like Cellypha or Cyphella or whatever. To me it seems perfect mature and probabl...

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.

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

Hello,

same opinion from me.
I regularily find fruitbodies with and without brown pigments in the same location.

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...
