Re: Hexagonia fungi?

I agree with Adam and Mal - Daedeliopsis confragosa - Blushing Bracket. Fungi within the genus Hexagonia are mostly tropical/sub-tropical. (They have pores which are generally hexagon / honeycomb shaped). The pores on your example have the "Daedalioid" - (irregular, elongated), - typical of Daedelio...

Amanita phalloides - Deathcap: - . 01 Amanita phalloides - Deathcap.jpg . Only one mature specimen (and another with an as yet unopened cap), were found, but a good month earlier than last year when numerous fruitbodies were seen in mid-September: - http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=14&st...

Sutorius luridiformis - Scarletina Bolete: -
(I understand that the scientific name was changed from Boletus luridiformis to Neoboletus luridiformis in 2014,
and then changed again, to Sutorius luridiformis in 2016).

Re: Large round fungus

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. I'm not suggesting that you are trying a hoax here, but there's something quite odd looking about that! Firstly, it looks just too perfectly circular in its shape. Secondly, where the "cap" seems to be broken (at about 11 o'clock and 5 o'clock), the inside looks to be of...

Re: More a question of ID

Hi Nellie, It's surprising where you might find fungi growing! Although most fungi will grow where there is light, they don't photosynthesise so don't need it and will happily grow in darkness. (Most commercial mushroom crops are grown in darkness). Although they were growing surrounded by roots of ...

Re: Unidentified Fungus in Mixed Woodland

Hi Bob, For Hedgehog Fungus, ( Hydnum repandum or Hydnum rufescens for example), the "spines" would be much more regular, and readily identifiable as individual spines. I think your find looks like a fairly young example of Abortiporus biennis - Blushing Rosette. Not yet fully mature, so not showing...

Re: Bolete Help Please

Hi,

None of the photos are sharply focussed on the pores, so can't get any detail there.

However, I think they have the general looks of Leccinum holopus - "Ghost Bolete".

(Although that species is primarily found in wet Birch habitat).

Regards,
Mike.

Hi all, I've amended the title on each of the individual posts above to reflect the moved thread's name, which now shows correctly. Though separate, the thread was still showing in the forum index under a title of "Fungus of the day" - (Having two threads with that title might have caused some confu...

Forage or Foray? The difference explained

Adam & Mike - I think this probably isn't the right forum for me and it's time to move on. I think I'll give this fungi foray site a go http://www.fungiforays.co.uk/. All the best Marc That is, of course, your prerogative. - I wish you well. The site to which you link is a commercial enterprise, cr...

Forage or Foray? The difference explained

. . . . Foray / forage are pretty interchangeable words . . . . Whilst it might be asserted that (as a verb) the word “foray” has a definition that is somewhat vague, i.e.: - “a short visit, especially with a known purpose”, the word “forage” has an altogether more specific definition, i.e.: - “to ...

Xerula radicata cheers Chris
Doh! - I knew there was something that didn't quite ring true, but it was only the lack of a striate stipe that was concerning me. :oops:

Xerula radicata is one that I've not yet found in my neck of the woods.

Re: Another unidentified fungus from Draycote Water

Hi Bob,

It has the general looks of Entoloma conferendum - (Star Pinkgill), other than the stipe doesn't appear to be obviously (longitudinally) striate?

Regards,
Mike.
