Re: Found within coniferous plantation

Hello, there are fungi or even genera/groups within the fungi that are quite easy to ID with the usual field books, and others are not. So in your case you had some "bad luck" that you came across two species belonging to the last group .... The first is Clitocybe species, and I wouldn't be astonish...

Hello,

definitely an Entoloma, but I doubt that you will get any further than that with this one.

Re: Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

Hello,

it indeed looks like L. salmonicolor, because of the pale orange cap which often has no concentric areas.
But that species is confined to Abies, which is not native in Britain as far as I suppose - so there must be some planted Abies trees ....

Re: Identification please?

Hello, Amanita phalloides is a completely different fungus in nearly all respects. The gills of your fungus are not free, but reach the stipe. The ring has a different consistency and has a brownish margin, which would not be in Amanita. The cap has a brownish colour A. phalloides would never have a...

Re: Foray Today

Hello, the first one is indeed Suillus viscidus in my opinion - there must have been a larch nearby then. S. viscidus is not only confined to Larix but also to calcareous soil, so this would still suite. The polypore is not so easy to determine, especially as the fotos should not much detailes. A ma...

Re: Stropharia maybe ?

Hello John,

what led me to the diagnosis - besides the ecology which for itself is very typical - is this encrusted cap margin, that looks like beset with sugar or sand particles. You can see it in three fruitbodies in the first foto of your 2nd posting.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Stropharia maybe ?

Hello,

I think this is Hypholoma subericaeum. I know this species only from borders of mesotrophic lakes, often together with reed or willow.
You could verify this by checking of chrysocytidia are present.
May be there are similar Hypholoma species to compare with ...
