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.

Background of the month

If anyone is interested in submitting a photo to use as a background, please reply to this topic with your photo. I'll do a poll of entries at the end of each month. We currently have a lichen. What will we have for February? If it proves popular, the admins will agree a shortlist. Note that in subm...

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.

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

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.
