Re: Cladonia coccifera?

Hello Neil,
Thank you for the further very interesting update. Variation in cup sizes and the ability (or not) to identify via TLC seems an absolute minefield way beyond my levels of current comprehension. Nevertheless, fascinating stuff and beautiful subjects to photograph. Thanks again.
Regards,
Bob

Re: Cladonia coccifera?

Thanks Paul. As you say life is never simple with Cladonia - but they certainly are interesting and add to the enjoyment of a walk. Thanks for your explanation and help, it's much appreciated.
Regards,
Bob

Cladonia coccifera?

I visited Cow Green Reservoir in Teesdale last week and noticed this small area of lichens. They were besides Cauldron Snout on the moor and I suspect they are Cladonia coccifera but would welcome better informed opinion. Thank you.

Fungus growing in multi-purpose compost

I would appreciate assistance identifying this fungus species growing beneath a shrub in a large pot with multi-purpose (peat free) compost. The first 2 images are in soil as I removed 2 specimens to obtain photographs. The cap is yellow even with age and the ringless stipe white. The cap in the 3rd...

As Always, thanks for your help Andreas. I was really struggling to even identify the genus. Thanks again.

Fungus growing in deciduous woodland

I am at a complete loss as to the identity of these fungi. The three specimens are growing within about a metre of one and other and I therefore assume they are the same species. They are growing in leaf litter (with twig debris) in a mixed deciduous woodland area at Draycote Water near Rugby. The c...

Re: Unusual cup fungus

Thank you Andreas. Unfortunately I do not have a microscope and this is something I clearly need to progress to. After I had submitted this post I recalled that I had previously posted another cup fungus that had received a detailed response from Chris Yeates. He provided me with the following infor...

Unusual cup fungus

Another fungus from Draycote Water near Rugby. This fungus was found growing in the base of a moth trap. The trap is basically a wooden box containing a light to attract moths. Over the past 2 -3 months it has been out of use and housed inside a dark garage. The fungus was growing singularly and in ...

Re: Galerina??? growing in compost

Thanks Chris for your thoughts. Certainly images of some Pholiotina hadrocystis that I have seen are pretty similar, but as you say without microscopy I am unable to take it further. I have done as Andreas suggested and recorded the images as Conocybe subgenus Pholiotina. Thanks for your help. Regar...

Re: Unidentified fungus growing inside a recycling bin

Thanks Chris and Flaxton. Yes it certainly is an interesting fungus. I have read that they have been found increasingly growing on polythene-wrapped straw bales but up a girl's sinus's is frightening. Thanks again.

Unidentified fungus growing inside a recycling bin

This fungus is growing on the inside "door" of a recycling bin at Draycote Water, near Rugby. The bin appears to be metal but the door appears to be lined and is possibly a composite material or fibre-glass. Although I didn't notice it at the time of photographing there appears to be a very small bi...
