Re: Roseodiscus ?

Hello Nigel I would suggest that your best bet would be to post this on http://www.ascofrance.com/ . It's easy (and free) to join and has participants from across the globe. Your good quality images would certainly not look out of place there, and people like Hans-Otto "Zotto" Baral would soon solve...

Re: Aquatic hyphomycete

Hello Neil Thanks for the information. I assume that the reason that the Collembolispora is figured in the Fungal Ecology paper is because one of the authors, Fernanda Cássio, was one of the original authors involved in finding and describing the fungus. I can't help but wonder how many times in the...

Re: Aquatic hyphomycete

Hello Neil You bet it is of interest! Definitely Collembolispora barbata . It's made my day . . . . :P I'd be very interested in the background to the collection, either here or via PM. A paper I wrote which included the Collembolispora is now open-source, you may or may not have come across it: htt...

Re: Funnel ID

I think it does have the general looks of Clitocybe nebularis . Albeit that C.nebularis is predominantly found in woodland, several sources do mention that it can also be found under hedgerows and in grassland. (For example, it is included in the book "Grassland Fungi - a field guide" by Elsa Wood ...

Re: very small fungus ID help please

Hello Clare I think you are surely correct. Stipe length is often not a reliable character, and is certainly irrelevant in this instance. Look at the different photo's here: https://mycena.no/adscendens.htm the stipe length depends on how the fruitbodies need to develop from different surfaces / pos...

Re: Small orangey brown fungi id?

Hi. Whilst out with the dogs this morning I came across this single fungi walking in the outer perimeter of the golf course. I'm in Central Scotland. It was on a decaying limb of tree, there are a lot of birch in the woods but I can't be certain that's what it was on. It is orangey brown in colour ...

Perhaps, but I've seen S. areolatum in gardens as well - always need to check spores under the microscope to be certain.

Re: Compact/Portable cameras

I would recommend also having a look at https://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/compacts/canon_g9xii (I presume there may well be later versions). I love mine and also got it as a carry-everywhere workhorse; it's extremely light (c200gm) and while I have been a lifetime Nikon DSLR man (4 different b...

Re: ID help fungus on silage bales

I first saw it on this substrate in North Yorkshire on Christmas Eve 1995. A fascinating fungus with an "interesting" sex life . . . https://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/feb2000.html
