Re: Problems Accessing BMS E-Journals?

Hi, I noticed the same problem when I tried to follow the link from the email notification. However, when I entered the web address I normally use..
www.sciencedirect.com/bms
..everything worked. Maybe it was just the email link that was faulty?

Regards, David

Re: Panaeolus?

Hi Adam,
Funga Nordica spore sizes could provide useful information - they give widths as 6-8 (fimicola) or 5-6 (reticulatus). I think your measurements include face-view measurements as well as side view.

Re: Small Entoloma with depressed cap

Wonder if this is E politum. Habitat seems OK. I usually find with Salix, but FN indicates Alnus as well.

Re: Mycena?

Think you will find this is an entoloma - something close to E serrulatum or, more likely given the apparent brownish colours, E caesiocinctum.

Re: Scratched condenser

Hi Adam,
For information - sevice/repair manuals, specifications etc. for olympus microscopes, worth looking at Alan Woods' site http://www.alanwood.net/

Might give some dimensions of the condenser.

Re: Advertising UK Fungi

I circulated a monthly bulletin to all BMS recording network contacts yesterday and included details for this website. This information should filter through to any BMS group members not already aware of the site.

Best regards.....David.

Re: South and West Wales Fungus Forum

Thanks Mark - good team effort all round.

I attach a couple of Mike Crutchley's pics - reckon the second one would do really well for a caption contest.

Best regards...David.

Re: Fungus Of The Day

Nice pic by Fiona from NBGW day. I think Bruce said this was King stropharia - a wood chip specialist only recently recorded in the UK. Some good info on the First Nature website - link below...

Re: non-fungal wildlife forum

Good to see other aspects of natural history covered.
Only suggestion is could the Fungi forum be promoted up from a subfolder to give it the prominence it deserves and to fit in with the forum title and web address?
...Now that it's a subforum it means an extra click to gain access ;)

Re: waxcaps

Hello Mike,

If you go the online UK checklist (CBIB) www.basidiochecklist.info and navigate to the updates page, there is a pdf file for 2015 updates which includes the new waxcap names currently recognised in the UK.

Best regards...David
