Re: Bulbous Cortinarius

Hello, what a nice find - unfortunately I can't tell you too much about it ..... Frm the stout habit and the dark cap I first thought it should belong in the Sordescentes group, but the flesh is not dark enough for that. In contrary, it has a distinct saffron touch (at least on my screen), so that I...

Re: Mycorrhizal hotspots

Hello, I remember that Prof. Moser talked to me once about this phenomen and he had the idea that it may be that a fruiting mycelium might influence surrounding mycelia to fruit. I'm not sure how serious this was ment, at least he didn't publish that theorie as far as I know. But the idea, that a fr...

Re: Tricky Lactarius

Hello,

the narrow gills, the rugulose cap surface and the yellowing milk suggest that this is Lactarius tabidus (= L. theiogalus).
Ecology would be fine for this species, but doesn't definitely exclude L. lacunarum

best regards,
Andreas

Re: Bolete for ID

Hello, Xerocomellus engelii-declivitatum-communis are the same species, but wether X. bubalinus is also synonym can be doubted. In my personal opinion it is not really possible to distinguish between X. rubellus and X. engelii - only the amount of red pigment in the cap colouration is different, and...

Re: The Fungus responsible for "Hair Ice"

Hello Mike, the cited article, as good as it is, is a bit misleading concerning the fungi involved. Though they say that there are several species involved, the article suggests that only Exidiopsis effusa is causing hair ice. That is not true, there are a lot of fungi that can cause this phenomene....

Re: Microscope camera

Hello, I have been told, that the optic of a light microscope is not able to resolute more than 3 MP, so there is no need to get a camera which has more than 3 MP. It's only that you can have larger pictures printed, but no better resolution. I have no idea about phisic and optic and so on, so have ...

Re: Cantharellus subpruinosus

Hello Adam, in some regions here in germany amethysteus is more common than cibarius. It is notworthy, that you have obviousely found subpruinosus ans amethysteus in the same location, though they have only slightly overlapping ecology. C. subpruinosus is usually found on basic soil, even calcareous...

Re: Cantharellus subpruinosus

Hi Adam, your Cantharellus cibarius is in fact Cantharellus amethysteus (or cibarius var. amethysteus, though I have no doubt that it is a species on its own). It's not only the purple scales on the cap, but also the cap colour is a bit colder yellow than in cibarius, but the underside of the cap is...
