Re: Anybody know what I’ve stumbled across?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

These are Sulphur Tuft - Hypholoma fasciculare.

Re: Mushroom ID Please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. I would have liked to have seen a good side on photo of the stem, but from what I can see here I'm leaning towards Laccaria laccata - The Deceiver. If your darker mushrooms are of similar size and appearance I'd doubt that they will be Honey Fungus, but if you post some ...

Re: Bolete

Having just seen your second post, I'd agree with you.

I was thinking H.rubellus when I looked at the pics in your original post, but declined to comment as I couldn't see any evidence of the expected red spots on the split stipe photo.

Regards,
Mike.

Field Mycology Journal Not Received

I'm a British Mycological Society member. My subscription includes "electronic access" to BMS journals, and a printed copy of Field Mycology Journal. I have not yet received a printed copy of FMJ vol.21(2), April 2020. (The electronic online version has been available for over two months now). I'm l...

Re: Dead Man's Fingers Xylaria polymorpha?

Hi Bob,

This one seems to have slipped under the radar - but yes, I'd agree with Xylaria polymorpha.

Re: Lycogala +?

Hi, Certainly a Lycogala species. I'd say that microscopy would be the only definitive way to be certain as to whether it's L. epidendrum or L. terrestre . However, as a rough "field characteristic", L. epidendrum invariably turns brown, with its (when mature) dry interior becoming a dark grey/brown...

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

After several weeks of Covid-19 "Lockdown", recent easing of government legislation (within England) currently allows travelling of any distance for the purpose of outdoor recreation and exercise, so long as social distancing measures are properly maintained. Cumbria County Council and the Lake Dist...

Re: Literature (and other resources) for Myxo's

The Myxomycetes of Britain and Ireland – (Bruce Ing), 374 pages, published in 1999, and now hideously expensive on the second hand market. However, this book is still the one to get for anyone interested in UK myxo’s, and if it can be found at a reasonable price, is highly recommended. http://www.s...

Re: Help identifying this bracket fungus please

. . . . I can't find the Collins book for a reasonable price, I guess its very popular and out of print at the moment . . . I suspect that you are right, in that it may be out of print. Good condition used copies do sometimes appear at reasonable prices on sites such as Amazon, so it's worth checki...

Re: Help identifying this bracket fungus please

. . . I also read that the Yellow flat-footed fly is fussy about where it lays its eggs/galls and this can help to get an accurate identification (is this correct?) . . . . I understand that the galls can frequently be found on G.applanatum , but not on other Ganoderma species so should definitely ...

Re: Fungus growing in peat free multi-purpose compost

Hi Bob, Looking at these pics, along with refreshing my memory by looking at your pics from May 2019: - https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2421&sid=0971f03f494ed766d3e83f29c1e2c70a#p11326 I'm still thinking that these have the right looks for Agrocybe praecox .

Re: Recently found, identification please

Looks like freshly emerging Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphurous).

It can often appear on living (but rather unhealthy or damaged) trees.
