Adam, I'm not sure I rule out sound. Whenever I find something exciting there is quite a lot of yipping. Perhaps a yip o'metre to indicate scarcity?
:lol: :D

Re: shaggy parasol?

Its more than just shots, its the smell, the texture, taste (not for the beginner) the habitat. Besides sight, there are 4 other senses (although I think we can rule out sound! :D ) But yes, seeing all parts of the fungus is good. :)

Re: Brown Grassland Mushroom?

I assume it has dark gills (and therefore black spores) so I would say Agaricus sp, but it needs cutting to see colour change and needs a good sniff.

Re: Brown Grassland Mushroom?

Despite posting this FAQ several times, you are still not providing enough information. Need to see gills! If it is still young, like this one, revisit in a couple of days when it has opened up.

Re: Id request for white mushroom

Welcome to UK Fungi

I would say not A arvensis as it tends to be more squat with a short stem relative to cap diameter. Its typically a very large mushroom. Smell is important for Agaricus sp, along with colour change when sliced lengthways.

Re: Velvet shank or something else please

Its not that. Looks like a Hypholoma species (eg Sulphur Tuft) A spore print is the first step in identifying. This will give a brown one, Velvet Shank would be white.

I get a bit stumped if things aren't in my Phillips or the First Nature site. Any other good books and site recommendations gratefully received.

Thanks again!

Photos issue

I am doing some maintenance to the site which means that previously added photos are not currently available.
New photos are unaffected.
There may be some other erratic behaviour for today (Sunday) but should all be sorted by tomorrow am.

Re: Peziza Repanda

Until I got into fungi, I thought all conifers were pines. Its the layman's knowledge of trees really. Since then, I've learnt that pines, spruce, firs, larch are all different and its important for fungi identification.
