Re: Thank you to Adam

Thanks guys! Glad it's been useful for you.
I have the FSC (natural history museum) lichen leaflets for common species. I must start looking, especially as this is a quiet time for larger fungi.

Re: FRDBI

It's nonsense about data protection. The names of recorders are not sensitive, and there is no need to give further details than name and where the fungus was recorded. This would be aan ideal time for CATE to show the way, but Michael Jordan seems determined to involve everyone in his war with the ...

Re: Please help ID this on my tree

To echo what Mike says, it's almost a certainty that something else is killing the bonsai. But even if the Bonsai survives, any old tree has dead parts. Look at one of those hollow veteran oaks. The inside is dead, but the tree could live another 300 years. Look out for signs of other fungi and send...

Re: FRDBI

I've held back from public criticism till now but it's really had long enough. The biggest issue for me is actually finding any records. For Pembrokeshire, I get 4 records and that's when I remember to increase the duration from 6 months to something like 60 years. Why 6 months? Why set any time as ...

Used to work well. As is often the case, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. It's overcomplicated for what most users require of it It's slow It doesn't return any of the records in my locality VC45. I'm no database expert, but the previous database construction was basically sound. The ...

How can you tell that just from the photo, Chris?
The stickiness of the cap and the colour and time of year.
More info would have been nice, but people persist in ignoring requests for stem and gill shots. :roll:
This would have a dark, velvety stem and pale gills.

Re: Christmas Day mini-foray

OK - another resupinate, extremely common and familiar to most of us, but I'm making sure I have a close at these from time to time anyhow. Plus you don't always come across them with all the identifying characters in good condition. Xylodon sambuci - the familiar "white-paint fungus" on elder, whi...

Re: Christmas Day mini-foray

Thanks for this! We are due a few dry days so might venture out a bit more. My goodness, we've had some rain.. We have Atlantic rainforests (small pockets) here with the emphasis on Atlantic!
