Re: Galerina sp

Thanks Andreas. It fits most of the characters of G.marginata - what held me back was the lack of a good ring but i suppose that's just weather, we've had a lot of wind and rain.

Galerina sp

Quick question. In the FN key, the initial split is between tibiiform or not. A few of the cheilocystidia have heads, but most don't. Should this be regarded as tibiiform or not? Growing on dead broadleaved wood yesterday. 4 spored. Clamps present. Pleurocystidia present. Ring zone - bare remains of...

Re: Possible Laccaria

A lot of people recommend that Collins but I find the photos poor. They mostly show only the top shots, when you need to see gills and stem at least as importantly.

Re: Possible Laccaria

What guide book do you use, Bob? Most split fungi by spore colour. You can usually guess spore colour from the gill colour, or you can see spores on the stem or they drop spores on the mushrooms below but if not, best to take a spore print.

Re: Velvet Shank ?

Ideally they should allow reporting at a say two levels of identification so in this case designate Flammulina velutipes and mark as non specific report and then subdivide and mark as confirmed unique id from experts. I thought this for a while. It seems a shame not to get a record at all because i...
