Re: A few for ID

More on the white 'Clitocybe' Spores My spore print was quite weak, but not white, perhaps a creamy pink? Spores were 11-14 x 5-6.5µm and negative to Melzers. Pileipellis Is there a photographic guide to pileipellis types? I find the diagrams in FN unhelpful as nothing looks like them. So from descr...

Google images

Phpbb by default prevents Google from indexing images. I asked why it does this in the phpbb own support forums, and they say if you enable image searching, you use up the bandwidth allowance quickly. To me, this is a shame as image search is very important, and there are some suberb and unique imag...

We only have 4 topics in this section and one on dung. Its only worth splitting further if the volume warrants it. Another option is to make it a "sticky" topic :lol: so it's always at the top.

Re: Fungi on Dung

Excellent slides as always, Chris. That germ pore is hard to see, could only see it clearly on one spore. As is often the case, presence of a character is more trustworthy than the apparent absence of one. Suzanne (my better half and known as Hawkeye) enjoys finding fungi, but she draws the line at ...

Re: A few for ID

Hi Adam #2 I think is Gymnopus confluens (spores should be elongated tear-shaped) #3 is surely an Amanita ; why not A. crocea ? spores more or less globose; might you have overlooked a volva? #4 is that bluey-green flush actual or an artefact? any noticeable smell? cheers Chris I'm sure you're righ...

Re: Rank (open for suggestions)

I agree that number of posts is not a particulary reliable to quality of advice/contribution. Nor is "time joined" but if you spend a long time on a forum, you can't help but learn something, and often very useful information. I know I learned a huge amount through WAB. Of course, many infrequent po...

2 images side by side

I'm trialling a change where two images can display side by side when using the inline option. In some case this can look a bit messy. If you make sure there are no spaces or line breaks between the attachments, it should look tidier. i.e [ attachment=2]DSCN5530.jpg[/attachment ][ attachment=1]DSCN5...
