Help with three red and yellow boletes

Hi all apologies for posting 3 different boletus identification requests but they were all similar yet different in key ways. All the spore prints were khaki/olive brown. I ran them through Kibby’s Bolete keys, but were never happy that what I ended up with looked like those in guidebooks and intern...

Re: Rugosomyces ionides / Violet Domecap ???

Thanks Flaxton - I did look at c. carnea as an option on account of the cap colour, but felt firstly, as it was found deep into woods (and not grassland where I believe c. carnea is found). Secondly, I also felt the dark purple stipe might be more indicative of the cap colour, as it was an old speci...

Hi all Sorry not found in the UK - but in the South of France (Provence) during a round of golf. A rather distinctive fungus 4 to 5 inches high. I was looking for a lost ball and thus couldn't study it for any length of time other than taking a quick snap on my phone. it was a foot away from another...

Brown, cone cap in pine

Hi, given the distinct conical shape and various stages of maturity, was confident of an ID. Alas none of my guide books were much help. Found in pine wood. Cap is dry and fibrous. Larger cap is 7cm in diameter. Very crowded gills are white. Alas, there is no spores yet dropping off my cap. The whit...

Re: Two different milk caps under birch

Thanks Adam.
I will be heading to the same spot tomorrow - any tips or suggestions as to what I can do on site to narrow down the choices for the right milkcap ?
