Re: Patch of Amantia? Plus something that has me confused

I'm hoping a proper expert will answer on this, I've only been doing this for about 10 years. The last one is familiar but cant place it. As far as toxicity is concerned, the lethal dose of Death Cap is about 1/2 a cap. This is the species that kills most people. So you really have to eat it for it ...

Re: Russula possibly ochroleuca

Really need a lot more info than this...do I need to link the FAQ again ;) Host tree would be good. With Russulas, we need taste and smell. Discolouration on bruising. Extent of peeling of cap. Even after that, microscopy is usually needed. It looks wrong for R. ochroleuca IMO which is paler. regards

Adam, I'm not sure I rule out sound. Whenever I find something exciting there is quite a lot of yipping. Perhaps a yip o'metre to indicate scarcity?
:lol: :D

Re: shaggy parasol?

Its more than just shots, its the smell, the texture, taste (not for the beginner) the habitat. Besides sight, there are 4 other senses (although I think we can rule out sound! :D ) But yes, seeing all parts of the fungus is good. :)

Re: Brown Grassland Mushroom?

I assume it has dark gills (and therefore black spores) so I would say Agaricus sp, but it needs cutting to see colour change and needs a good sniff.

Re: Brown Grassland Mushroom?

Despite posting this FAQ several times, you are still not providing enough information. Need to see gills! If it is still young, like this one, revisit in a couple of days when it has opened up. We want to help give an ID, so please comply with this simple request so we can help you. Please take a m...

Lepiota cristata or something close to it.

Re: Id request for white mushroom

Welcome to UK Fungi

I would say not A arvensis as it tends to be more squat with a short stem relative to cap diameter. Its typically a very large mushroom. Smell is important for Agaricus sp, along with colour change when sliced lengthways.
