Re: tiny 3mm diameter white fungi on mossy oak branch

Hi, There are over 1000 records (which is quite a reasonable number, comparatively speaking) for Phloeomana minutula , on the Fungal Records Database of Britain & Ireland, but under one of its former names - Mycena olida . (It's always useful to search for synonymy with fungi names as nomenclature c...

Re: tiny 3mm diameter white fungi on mossy oak branch

Could be something like Phloeomana (Mycena) minutula , but there are several of these small whitish bark inhabiting mushrooms, and characteristics such as stipe attachment, gill numbers and spacing, etc. etc. would all be needed. (As would microscopy in all probability, to be anything like confident...

Re: Saffron milk cap?

Going on what I can see from the photo, and without further information, it's possible that you have both here! Firstly, photos showing numerous fruitbodies (at least fourteen, and maybe even a small part of a fifteenth to be seen here!), especially when they have been transported away from their na...

Re: mushroom identification

The more I look at the cap images, they just appear to be "knobbly" rather than breaking up into veil remnants as those of A.citrina would. It would be interesting to see a couple of cap shots of more mature examples just to see what the tops age like. - And maybe a close up of the gills and stem ri...

Re: mushroom identification

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. The caps bear a remarkable resemblance to Amanita citrina var. alba , but that's usually a woodland dweller. - I've never seen it in anything like a lawn type situation. Both Deathcap and False Deathcap have white gills, although they can turn more creamy and have hints ...

Re: Amanita rubescens and Agaricus species?

Hi Bob, Yes, I'd agree with Amanita rubescens for the first. I'm pretty sure that the other would be Lacrymaria lacrymabunda - Weeping Widow. A very good field identification for which (in all but the very driest of weather) is the production of watery black droplets of liquid (hence its common name...

Hi Adam,

It says in the preface that they have defined "temperate Europe" as: - from Northern Norway down to the Alps, Northern France-Northern Spain, the Baltic States, Poland, and parts of the Steppe region, Hungary & Ukraine.

Re: Milk cap ID help please

. . . . The quantity of ‘milk’ was unlike any I’ve seen before. Thanks. According to what I've read, L.volemus does produce copious amounts of "milk", so that's encouraging. What may clinch the identification is that the "milk" as it dries, turns brown. (Seen very obviously if you were to put some ...

Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Encoelia furfuracea : - First time I've seen this, - and with a common name of "Spring Hazel Cup", I wouldn't have expected to find it in late August. (It must not have read the books :lol: ). Jokes aside, I understand that it can fruit in both Spring and Autumn. ;) . 04 - Encoelia furfuracea - Spr...

Re: Possible Chlorophyllum brunneum & Chlorophyllum rhacodes

Hi Bob, I don't see very many "parasol" type mushrooms in my neck of the woods, but I think you are probably correct with the second two as Chlorophyllum rhacodes . You may well be correct with the firs two as well - but I wouldn't feel confident in agreeing or disagreeing. :oops: Hopefully someone ...
