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.

Chris
But not exclusively. From the article "It appears to have a particular preference for willow (Salix spp) although other hosts are known as in the collection below."

Re: Possible Flammulina velutipes

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

Re: Upgrade

What do you think of this theme (only in this sub-forum) ? As a basis for development. I can then add our own customisations. Its full width and quite clean.

Re: Upgrade

I agree the unread posts colour coding was useful so its a shame to lose that.

Re: Upgrade

At the moment, I'm not planning to make any customisations to the current theme other than the header image (Hazel Gloves) or the background (Lichen) which are easy to do. I could go back to the original theme, but I need to update it to make to compatible with the latest version of the forum softwa...

Re: Upgrade

Sorry, Jenny. I just felt the background was a little too distracting. If you'd like a lichen as the header image, I'd be happy to use it. I would need a photo at least 1110 x 350 (letterbox shape)

I've tried lightening the background it a bit to see if it works better.

Re: Upgrade

I was trying to see if there was a problem with my template or whether it was the update. It seems it was both. The new theme is a 3rd party one. There is a bug that means the default style is not being applied to all the forums, and I have to manually go to each one and change it. I've been racking...

This is a strange one. I've posted a question in the phpbb community forums.

Upgrade

Just to let you know I've upgraded to the latest forum software. It was trickier than usual, requiring the old software to be replaced, instead of doing an in-place upgrade. Apologies for the short outage.

Re: Yellow stem st albans area

A situ shot is often helpful but I know taking samples home is necessary sometimes if there is poor light or you forgot your camera. Its unlikely to be a waxcap, growing on wood (and it looks quite wrong for a waxcap with such a long stem) But I have found a waxcap growing on a very rotten stump. Th...
