Re: Please help id this Entoloma

I'm getting E. porphyrophaeum - I think I can see a few moliniform necks in those cheilocystidia. The stem colour is quite distinctive.
Although FN2 describes it as rare in temp, First Nature says its quite common in unimproved grassland.

Re: Small brown capped mushroom with lateral stem

The gill edge photo shows cystidia nicely. The closest match I can find is Crepidotus applanatus but this is very rare and has ornamented spores. But its one of the few Crepidotuses with globose spores and the cheilocystidia being broader in the upper part. The spore size matches too.

Re: Hi what have I got here?

Yes, to support Mike, we would need a shot showing the gills and stem at the least.

Re: Fungus Identification - Help ............

Thank you for this, very helpful, I think I will remove and see what happens next year! I dont understand why you would risk going up the tree to remove the fruit bodies. Its like picking blackberries and expecting to kill the bramble. As Mike says, its saprobic so will only affect dead wood (like ...

Re: Found in Manchester - agaricus?

Agaricus is actually a tricky genus, and really needs microscopy and chemical tests. Even then, I understand species are likely to be redefined soon.

Re: mushroom identification

Amanita is a genus of ectomyxorrizal fungi, ie its symbiotic with trees and only certain trees. Are there any trees nearby? (btw, it just looks wrong for Amanita in any case.)

Maybe Leucoagaricus leucothites but I'm not familiar with this species.

Re: Amanita rubescens and Agaricus species?

Hi Bob, Yes, I'd agree with Amanita rubescens for the first. I'm pretty sure that the other would be Lacrymaria lacrymabunda - Weeping Widow. A very good field identification for which (in all but the very driest of weather) is the production of watery black droplets of liquid (hence its common nam...
