Re: Grey Milkcap?

Thanks both Despite one of the caps having water on it, I would describe the cap surface as dry and the edges smooth. Alas I no longer have a sense of smell (which predates COVID). I asked my wife what she smelt, and her less than helpful response was 'mushroomy'. I then broke up the cap and put it...

Re: Grey Milkcap?

L. syringinus is another possibility. It's associated with birch or spruce. I think L. syringinus is "not authentically British" . . . . so very unlikely True, but its not discovered until its discovered.. The reason I say this is because in The Genus Lactarius - FNE series, it says "L. syringinus ...

Re: Dartmoor walk and fungi

I saw some LBJs too, but had to stop somewhere :D - no waxcaps at all ,but it was a bit early for them.
Some lovely woodlands in Dartmoor too. We stumbled on a Woodland Trust one by accident and it was lovely. I'm thinking of joining for a year mainly to get their list of woods!

Re: Grey Milkcap?

Was the surface dry or sticky?
Was there any smell, say coconut, curry, fishy, oily, fruity?
Was the cap edge smooth? Its hard to tell from the photo.

Dartmoor walk and fungi

My photography will never match Mike's but hopefully you can get an idea of what this walk is like, done in early September. The walk starts at a car park by Bennett's Cross, a medieval stone cross. Grid ref. SX679815 and then proceeds slightly downhill past some old rectangular stone plots to some ...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Mike's website is really good and well worth a visit if you are planning a trip to the lakes. I like the grading system. My wife wants to go back there after seeing these photos. :) Although when I asked if she wanted to climb up 2,500 feet she winced a bit. I can't see a rating for this walk, but a...

Re: What are these mushrooms

i found these small ones and i wonder what species they are and if they are toxic to humans or dogs/cats. They were found on my lawn 50%grass 50%moss I think you would get a more sympathetic response if you hadn't removed so many mushrooms. On here, we enjoy looking at and identifying fungi, like b...

Re: ID requested for Mushroom with double dividing gills

Gymnopus dryophilus or or Gymnopus aquosus or something close to them. Need microscopy to confirm.
