Re: Amanita rubescens and Agaricus species?

Thank you both. As always much appreciated. I have actually seen many Weeping Widow at my usual stomping ground (Draycote Water) but there they tend to be in large clusters - so should have got that! Thanks again.
Regards,
Bob

Amanita rubescens and Agaricus species?

I photographed these fungi at Dunwich Heath two weeks ago. Unfortunately they both are past their best. Both were growing in heathland type soil but in mixed woodland areas. I suspect the first is Amanita rubescens and the other an Agaricus species. There were only 3 of the latter very loosely group...

Re: Possible Chlorophyllum brunneum & Chlorophyllum rhacodes

Thanks Mike. That's helpful and deals with half. Hopefully the fungi will still be around next week and allow me views in a more mature state. Unfortunately, like many other places, visitors to Draycote Water seem to treat the fungi as footballs. Thanks again.
Regards,
Bob

Possible Chlorophyllum brunneum & Chlorophyllum rhacodes

These 2 fungi species were both photographed at Draycote Water near Rugby on Friday. They were growing about 50 mtrs apart. They were growing in an area of mixed woodland although in all cases they seemed to be growing through pine needles. The first 2 photographs are of a species were several seeme...

Unidentified Fungus in Mixed Woodland

I photographed this fungus yesterday at Draycote Water, Rugby. It was in an area of mixed woodland and appeared to be growing in rotting twigs. The cap appeared very irregular, even pitted and velvety and it was not clear to me whether this was a single fungus or more than one fused together. The ca...

Re: Another unidentified fungus from Draycote Water

Thanks Mike. In the attached photo I have applied highlights particularly to the stipe. The photo was taken in sunlight which can have a tendency to burn out detail. I think the "revised" image gives a hint of longitudinal striate but I may be kidding myself.

This fungus is growing besides the entrance road into Draycote Water, Rugby. It is in an area of grass which is regularly mown and beneath a Red Oak. The cap is beige and about 4cms across. It is heavily and irregularly grooved, slightly umbonate but smooth in the centre. The gills are white. The st...

Re: Russula species?

Thanks for responding Marc. I appreciate with limited information you can not be 100% certain - charcoal burner was one of the possibilities I was considering. Thanks again for your better informed opinion.
