Re: Mushroom with red/brown 'dew' drops

I suspect these are a Hebeloma species (the Poison Pies) The drops are often found with these.

Too decomposed to have any idea, I'm afraid.

There are also some Galerinas that could fit, again a brown spore print. Microscopy is probably required for a confident ID,

Re: [edit] Brownish agaric - was Golden Waxcap Hygrocybe chlorophana

Welcome to UK Fungi. :)

This is a good example of where a spore print would help.
I think your fungus is Tubaria furfuracea or something close to it.
Tubaria will give a brown spore print whereas waxcaps will give a white one.

Re: Lactarius ??

Welcome to UK Fungi I'd be interested in how you reached your ID. Lactarius are a difficult genus and many species are visually very similar and require using a key to reach a confident ID. Part of the key is a taste test and very importantly is colour change of the milk on drying. Without those, I ...

Re: Fungi on moss

Ok, that looks like a dextrinoid reaction. The spores in the first photo (in water I assume) look pale to me, though not hyaline. There's a range of light browns, from yellowy, to cream, to rusty, or even pinkish browns. You can get colour charts, with precise colour names. The gill colour would als...

Re: Fungi on moss

Can you post a photo of the spore print? Scrape the spores into a pile with a razor if possible. Then a photo of the pile after adding Melzers.

Re: hohenbuehelia petaloides ?

Hohenbuehelia have cystidia. That species has metuloid gill cystidia which would be quite fun to look at. I'd also check the iodine reaction of the spores.
Clitocybe gibba would be my first thought (Clitocybe lack cystidia)

This is the case for the ID requests forum, Mike, but this is under miscellaneous substrates. I'll message you.
