Re: Bonnet fungus

Hello Bob, yes, usually not possible to determine on species level without microscopy. Depending on the experience one has there are a minor number of species which can be recognized in the field. Yours doesn't belong to these, though an exper will surely narrow it down to maybe a handful of possibl...

Re: Possible Mazegill Gloeophyllum

Hello,

yes, definitely Gloeophyllum sepiarium.
It is causing a severe brown rot and when you see the fruitbodies you can already start to look for a substitute for your fence or whatever, as the attacked timber will break into pieces soon.

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Baffled!

Hello,

this is typical Lepista sordida.

the pictures in NO and SW show that the basidia are more than 2-spored (means 4-spored).

best regards,

Re: Are these Chaetocalathus craterellus?

Hello,

this one needs microscopy. Most likely a crepidotus species, possibly Clitopilus hobsonii. I don't think that there are alternatives to this two possibilities.

best regards,

Re: Unidentified fungus - ID Request

Hello, more likely an Arrhenia species. We have Arrhenia rickenii very often in open, sheep-grazed grassland on calcareous soil in Istria (Croatia). Btw.: There are Entoloma species which look similar to this and have such decurrent gills. So without microscopy I wouldn't bet that it is not an Entol...

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...

I admit that I don't have any clue to this up to now, but I have no books aroud me at the moment. But I will keept that in mind and have more looks on what genus it might be....

Re: Any chance of getting to genus level ?

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 ....

best regards,
Andreas
