Re: Dartmoor walk and fungi

Nice one Adam. :)

Dartmoor is an area that I've never personally visited. - Good to see some fungi too!

On my recent Lake District walk over Selside Pike etc., the fells seemed quite bare of fungi for the time of year. I saw just a few tiny Galerina's

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Mike's website is really good and well worth a visit if you are planning a trip to the lakes. . . . . Hi Adam, Just to clarify in case there is any misunderstanding, I have no involvement with WalkLakes website other than being a supporter of it, and one of several people who posts reports of walks...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Another nice set of photos. Striding Edge always looks quite scary but I guess its not so bad on a warm sunny day without a lot of wind. Thanks Mike. :) Cheers Adam. :) Monday 21st September was forecast to have lengthy sunny periods and fairly light winds, so I made another trip to the Lake Distri...

Lovely, Mike! Cheers Adam. Guepinia helvelloides - (Salmon Salad) : - A smaller one in the peak of condition, and a much larger cluster of fruitbodies that are just slightly past their best! . Guepinia helvelloides - Salmon Salad 2.jpg Guepinia helvelloides - Salmon Salad 1.jpg Regards, Mike.

Re: Death Caps

There are several records of Amanita phalloide s in the north-west on the Fungal Records Database of Britain & Ireland. The old database is easily accessible (although the pages can take quite a few seconds to load/reload). The homepage for that database, which is freely accessible to anyone, is: - ...

Re: Possible Yellow Stainer?

Hi, Sorry, I somehow misread your post and missed what you'd said about actually having seen it stain yellow. I had seen the last shot, but the colouration on the rim seemed more like an artifact of the light on the cap-rim rather than staining. Anyhow, your additional photo does strongly suggest A....

Re: Possible Yellow Stainer?

Hi, and welcome to Uk Fungi. What makes you think it's Yellow Stainer - Agaricus xanthodermus ? definitely an Agaricus , but I can't see any evidence of yellow staining on any of your photos. If you still have access to the sample, try scratching the surface of the cap and the stem with a fingernail...

Re: What happened to these mushrooms?

They have simply undergone natural decay - (some of those here more so than others).

The final photo shows decaying fruitbodies having been attacked by some sort of mucor type fungus.

Re: Rooting Bolete?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Not one that I'm personally familiar with, but on habitat and visible macro characteristics, your ID looks good to me.

Re: And more help please...

I'd say you are correct with your ID's. A.pantherina can have stipes of varying thickness, but your example is well within the expected range. General macro characteristics worth noting between the two species are that A.pantherina has an obvious angular "gutter" at the point where the swollen base ...
