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...

Hello,

this is Agaricus phaeolepidotus, another member of the Xanthodermatei, say the "yellow stainer family"

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 ...

Re: Not so much the species, more…

Hello, I too think that this is Mycena rosea. To colour cheilo- and pleurocystidia (as well as all other elements like clamps, basidia,...) the best dying solution is undoubtly congo red. Phloxin is staining the whole preparation in the same colour and doesn't diffenciate between cell wall and cell ...

Re: Red Lactarius

Hello, most fruitbodies look like they had frost already, or were rehydrated after being dried out. The only typical one is foto no. 3 - or at least this is the only one which I can identify. This one shows Lactarius mitissimus/aurantiacus. The completely orange cap coulor which is unicoulored from ...

Re: Tubaria sp?

Hello Adam, not necessarily. But you need to check a) the Pleurocystidia: obtuse or acute apex and b) the gill edge wether there are only clavate to spheropedunculate cystidia or wether there are pleurocystidoid cheilocystidia too. It would also be important to check the spore size average if it is ...

Re: Coral Fungus

Hello, Ramariopsis crocea would be a rare find! But this species is terricolous and not lignicolous, and much more fragile and finer than what you have there. Also the consistency is like greasy rubber in your fungus, whereas Ramariopsis would be quite fragile and completely dry. You have poorly dev...

Re: Beautiful grey mushrrom

Hello,

this looks like Tricholoma terreum to me.
Though there are only willow leaves to see on the foto - which would suggest rather Tricholoma scalpturatum/argyraceum - I think it is T. terreum ss. str.. May be there were some oine trees nearby?

best regards,
Andreas
