Re: I think this is a Cedar cup but not sure

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Looks good to me. You can find previous records on the old FRDBI (albeit that it isn't fully up to date), by searching that website by Vice County: - http://basidiochecklist.science.kew.org/BritishFungi/FRDBI/FRDBI.asp (Note however, that the homepage of that website tak...

Re: FRDBI

Hi Adam, Very odd - but even more evidence of just how user unfriendly the website is! I can see from your screengrab that you had also saved "Pembrokeshire" as a custom filter, and were using that custom filter. (Whereas when I tried it I hadn't saved anything at all as a custom filter, and had res...

Re: FRDBI

Hi all, Just to clarify: - Re the previous few posts, Tony Carter (and Chris) were referring to the old FRDBI - which, as they have discovered, can now be accessed, (albeit that the page takes an age to load!!!), at: - http://basidiochecklist.science.kew.org/BritishFungi/FRDBI/FRDBI.asp (Note http a...

Re: Searchable List of Accepted Common & Latin Names

The main reason I'm posting here is to point out that Stearn's brillian "Botanical Latin" is now available as open source: https://archive.org/details/BOTANICALLATINWILLIAMSTEARN/mode/2up Doh! - I bought the 2010 printing of that book several years ago at great expense - but still, it's very useful...

Re: Searchable List of Accepted Common & Latin Names

. . . I think these are accepted English names rather than "common" Mal Hi Mal, You will note, if you have a look at my screengrab some six posts above, that I do use "Accepted English Name" on the column header, as that is what BMS use at the head of their version of the list. When people refer to...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

First Lake District visit of 2020! The Lake District weather forecast for Monday 20th January looked quite promising: - “Sunny periods with frost and possible fog in valleys during the morning”. So, on that basis, I decided to have a look on Gladstone Knott near Crinkle Crags, to try to find “Gladst...

Re: Please help ID this on my tree

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. These are undoubtedly a Flammulina species, ( Flammulina velutipes or something very similar). See: - https://www.first-nature.com/fungi/flammulina-velutipes.php Flammulina's are saprobic. - i.e., they usually live on dead or dying wood, from which they get their nutriti...

Re: FRDBI

. . . It is irritating that there is a great deal of information about the distribution of fungi within the UK which is totally inaccessible. . . . I agree wholeheartedly! When I became interested in Fungi in 2008, I joined my local group, (North West Fungus Group). I also joined the British Mycolo...

Re: Searchable List of Accepted Common & Latin Names

Just noticed that the link to my list in the original post, (searchable by both accepted common name and by scientific name), isn't working. As it happens, over 300 more common names were added in 2019. (Currently, 1808 of the species so far recorded in Great Britain now have "accepted common names"...

Re: Catathecia

To add to what Chris has said, there is an explanation (copied below) in the article: - "Observations on some genera of Trichothyriaceae: B.M.Spooner & P.M.Kirk, Myclological Research 94 (2): 223-230 (1990)" which says: - "The family Trichothyriaceae was established by Theisse (1914), to include gen...
