Not rare this time - but always nice to see: Cudoniella acicularis "oak pin":

I think L. syringinus is "not authentically British" . . . . so very unlikely

Re: Id please [bolete]

Hi Jane and welcome to the site. Unfortunately in this instance you have taken it as far as it goes, in naming it a "bolete" - check out: https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 With many boletes colour changes when exposed to air, or simply the colours of a fruitbody cut in half are importa...

Re: What are these mushrooms

Sometimes people's "humorous" nicknames don't help . . .

The monumental monograph of the Orbiliomycetes has now reached the publication stage: http://www.ascofrance.com/search_forum/64533 I have been given access to an advance PDF, as a number of my collections are included, and the amount of information (and work!) is more than phenomenal. 150 Euros is o...

Re: Boletus edulus

Hi Bob
it's not Boletus edulus - it's Boletus edulis ;) Enough to go on; as often seen it's "full o' mawks" as they say around here.
Cheers

Re: ID requested for Mushroom with double dividing gills

It would have been helpful to have a shot of the stem parallel to the ground, as well as this foreshortened view. I think this is Xerula radicata again, with a snapped-off stem-base (Not very well collected I'm afraid to say). Cap top is typical, but the image is over-exposed. I think the "dividing ...

Re: Grooved mushroom found in September

Thanks Adam! I’ll try making some ink this week then! :lol: You laugh Adam, but someone once told me (on good authority) that (I think during WW2) various ministry departments took the ink of different Coprinus (as the name then used) species mixed with normal ink and placed them in different inkwe...

Re: New to mushroom FORAYING [admin edit]

#1 & #3 are Xerula radicata , 2 is Lycoperdon perlatum . I can say that because of years of experience (which included making mistakes in the early years!), not by looking online, which if you are just starting out I would not recommend - there are lots of misidentifications online. Fungi are genera...

Re: Fungus growing on Silver Birch

Hi
I suspect they were "extremely delicate" for the very reason you suggest. This one - we obviously can't see the others - looks to have been attacked by another fungus, thus breaking down its structure.

Re: Chaga maybe?

Hey guys, pretty new to the whole scene and this forum :) On a recent walk we came across what our identification apps labelled as Chaga (pictures below). However looking online we can't seem to find any pictures of chaga that look similar to the specimen we found. Is this just a young specimen? If...
