Hi Tommy, when you ask for an ID, it is only polite to thank the person responding, and answer any follow up questions required to be more certain.

Re: Registration disabled

While I'm sure that you are being wise Adam it may be that there is just a Chinese trawl for any mycological info. I have heard from seeral people who have attended various forays on the continent with young Chinese students there, grabbing any and all named specimens to take back to China. There's...

Re: Rosegill?

Looks good for Volvopluteus (new name) gloiocephalus, according to Fungi of temperate Europe, fruits May to December. Volvariella pusilla is a small white mushroom. I think the volva might be there in the soil but broken up? Worth noting noting that some fungi don't appear when they are supposed to ...

Re: Mushroom id request

Re: Help identifying this bracket fungus please

The gall-midge is far from frequent in Britain: https://species.nbnatlas.org/species/NBNSYS0100001385 I have seen it where that northernmost dot is, at the very species-rich Anston Stones Wood, towards the extreme SE boundary of Yorkshire.

Re: Fungus, indoor, soil.

Inhaling a lot of spores can trigger Hayfever like symptoms among those susceptible to it. If Chris wont hazard a guess, I wont either. If you had access to a microscope, you could do a gill squash (if the gills are developed enough) or look for a spore deposit on older specimens. Spore colour would...
