Dead fly with Entomophthora fungus?

Someone on an insects Facebook group suggested it might be Entomophthora sp. Any thoughts. It didn't occur to me it was fungal, or even a dead fly.

Re: Clusters of fawn fungi at edge of mixed broadleaf trees

Sounds good for it. I'd record it as St George's Day mushroom. [Note the edibility warning in pink text above. ]
Time of year is also a factor. There are few if any similar mushrooms around this early.

Re: Mushroom ID request

Try Polyporus brumalis. Its not Chicken of the Woods as it has a stem.

Welcome to UK fungi.

Its possibly Calocybe gambosa but I wouldn't bet your life on it :) - it should have a mealy smell.

Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Interesting So is that a grazed area made by the detritivore/herbivore/(fungivore?) millipede? One assumes that a predatory centipede would have no interest in fungi. It certainly looks like it. As far as centipedes go, maybe they would use them as shelter or something? Or go there to prey on somet...

Re: Query of unknown fungi?

Anything could be dangerous to your dogs, eg daffodils, foxgloves, eating broken glass. Dogs have more sense than people credit them with. I've been on 1000s of walks in "fungus infested" woods with my dog. She pukes up more often on walks around my town, most likely from eating an old bit of kebab ...

Can't disagree. I'm not trying to push Armillaria as an ID, but neither Galerina nor Tubaria seem right either.
There are around 48 Galerina species, and 5 Tubaria species. The first step in any agaric ID is a spore print. :)

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

I think Armillaria is more strict on its timing than the other 2. It appears suddenly everywhere, then its gone. Just my theory, but I put this down to the huge mycelium of Armillaria, while the other two are smaller. Also, the other two are pure saprobes, so their metabolism is more local, being ti...
