I agree with Chris, your third image shows a more convincing range of spores.

I can't compete with Chris's wonderful DIC photographs, but there are some here your might find useful for reference.

Re: Galerina clavata confirmation

Thanks Chris. The cystidia look just like it. Spores definitely roughened and big. the two on the left show this the best.
14 spores measured in total. Nice job with the slide! Looking forward to your book!

Literature for resupinates, brackets, crusts etc

I saw there was a new book on resupinates but are missing the recommended literature in this section (which we have for other sections) so I'll start by adding this one at a quite reasonable £31.95

The Resupinates of Hampshire 3rd edition.

Re: Today's finds - East Devon

Thank you, Chris! Is the fact that these ones have flaky stems not a gamechanger? The honey fungus I have seen pictures of all have smooth stems. I also added some pictures of another mushroom, if you could have a guess? Found on roadside, growing amongst dead leaves. Thank you again! Z. The latest...

The most likely confusion is with Flammulina elastica which grows on willows (Salix) and has larger spores.

Re: Possible Flammulina velutipes

There are several Flammulina only separable by microscopy. See Funga Nordica 2012. Or Field Mycology Vol 12 (3) Fungal Portraits.
