Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Cheers Adam, - I know what you mean, but I have to admit that all my favourite spots in the Lake District are amongst the fell-tops. Here's another, from last Thursday: - The forecast was for a bright sunny day, with increasing cloud appearing during the afternoon. I wanted a relatively short walk d...

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

. . . . Do these photos really say Galerina or Tubaria to you? I still think it's a puzzle. I agree that it's a puzzle - but I remain 100% confident that these aren't Armillaria . ;) You can see from their general appearance that the fruitbodies in Mossman's photos are pretty much fully mature, You...

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

I think that being found recently would completely discount Honey Fungus. - I'm not aware of any Armillaria that fruits (in UK) in spring? (Plus, I completely agree that they don't look like Honey Fungus). Interesting that they were on deciduous wood. Tubaria confragosa and Andreas' suggestion of Ga...

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

It would help to know whether the fallen trunk upon which they are growing is deciduous or conifer.

From the general appearance, they have the looks of one of the Tubaria species - maybe T.confragosa.

Regards.
Mike.

Re: unknown unusual mushroom

Hi, Repeat fruiting year on year of "naturally occurring" soil growing fungi can be something of a lottery. You may be lucky, and find that more appear next year, (or indeed in a few days/weeks time, as spring is very much the season for morels). Sometimes though, the appearance of mushrooms is a on...

Re: unknown unusual mushroom

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Your mushroom is one of the "Morel" species.

The photo appears to be slightly off-focus, but I'd say it has the general looks of a small Common Morel, Morchella esculenta.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Slug looking carpet fungus

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your fungus is a "cup" fungus, almost certainly one of the Peziza species. Given the substrate, - (i.e your boat's carpet), I'd be looking at Peziza domiciliana - which, in some regions, does have the common name of "Carpet Cup", although that is not a British Mycologica...

Re: Vivarium mushroom

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Not much more than a guess at this stage, but in general appearance it is vaguely reminiscent of a not quite mature Parasol or Inkcap type of mushroom. However, given the circumstances of its appearance, it could be something quite unusual, or even a new species within t...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

The winter so far has been very mild, particularly so in the past few weeks, with almost all of the late January and early February snow on the high fells having now melted. The weather forecast for Tuesday 26th February was for a continuation of the unseasonally high temperatures, with a fine, sunn...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

A rather belated thanks for your comment, Nelly! :oops: ;) Things have been fairly quiet on the fungi front lately, so I thought I’d catch up on this thread with details of a couple of recent walks. The weather forecast for Saturday 2nd February had suggested a sunny winter’s day. – Although, as thi...

Re: Myxo on mossy trunk

Hi James, Can't be certain, as microscopy would be needed to be sure, but they have the general looks of Physarum album . Pretty common, and can appear on all sorts of herbaceous/leafy/mossy/very rotten wood debris types of substrates: - Physarum album 01a 051111.jpg Physarum album 02b 100412.jpg Ph...
