Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

Can't disagree. I'm not trying to push Armillaria as an ID, but neither Galerina nor Tubaria seem right either.

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

I'm sort of sorry I ever mentioned Armillaria now, but the scaled surface of the lower fb and the general appearance of the stipe and ring still have a familiar look to me. I'd agree on size and timing of course. However, where is your evidence for this being brown spored? Do these photos really say...

Re: City centre resident

Would you mind telling us when you saw this? I wouldn't expect to see it in January.

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

Am I missing something? I can't see any other bracket fungi, only what looks like a Peltigera species.

Re: Small, brown, domed fungus

Interrupting the experts again! My first thought was Psilocybe coprophila. Why would you rule that out?

Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

I'm now reluctant to get involved in such a learned discussion, but the thread picture seems to me to show a smoother surface than Chris's Phellinus picture.

Re: Help to identify orange fungus on apple tree

Looks like Phellinus pomaceus, not uncommon on old apple trees. Parasitic, but there's no point cutting off the fruit body. The organism within the tree remains unaffected. Just enjoy the new fruit the tree's giving!
