Re: Possible Flammulina velutipes

Hello Bob, Yes Flammulina velutipes for your first. (Unless the powers that be have changed the name or decided to split things up because of genome sequencing etc. :roll: :D ) As for your second, I'd be looking at something like Nectria or Neonectria , but wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to part...

Re: Upgrade

. . . do people prefer the previous theme or this one? . . . Personally, being a bit of a dinosaur on such things, I do prefer the previous theme. It was more discreet / less intrusive. This new theme has elements that, (to me), don't gel well. (e.g. The little toucan face icons and the red topics/...

Re: Upgrade

Hi Adam, When logged in, there is no longer any indication on the main homepage to let people know that new (unread posts) have been made. Only when you have actually navigated to a forum that does contain unread posts, do you see a small red marker, at the left hand side of the title of the unread ...

Re: Upgrade

Hi Adam, 11:35am Friday 11th January. You've obviously been doing more work on the site in the interim, so to update you on what I'm seeing: - The multiple image & text problems mentioned in my post above now seem to be resolved, but the PHP-BB "header" is still showing on some pages - as below: - C...

Nice find Chris,

I was only mentioning that very same species to someone earlier today - although we didn't find any!

My fungus of the day is: -

Re: Upgrade

Hi Adam, It looks like this upgrade has messed up a lot of the posts that have several images included again. eg a few examples of what's typically gone wrong: - https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=223#p1099 (Text moved and images overlapping) https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=40...

Re: Slime mould on silver birch trunk

Hi James, If it is C.nigra , the microscopy should be pretty easy, as all you really need to check is that the spores, which look brown under transmitted light of a microscope, are spherical, about 9-10µm in diameter, and faintly warted or nearly smooth. Several good photos of C.nigra spores come up...

Re: Slime mould on silver birch trunk

Hi James, Nice to know that my suggestion is looking good! As for your myxo, I strongly suspect it will be one of the Comatricha species - maybe Comatricha nigra (which it definitely has the looks of, and which is very common). However, I'd still say that you would have to do the microscopy on this ...

Re: Slime mould on silver birch trunk

Hi, I'm thinking that what you have here is not a slime mould, but Phleogena faginea - Fenugreek Stalkball. I've never actually seen it - and it is not common at all, so, nice find if it is! As you mention that you have collected some, then I'd suggest drying it. Apparently, P.faginea has a very str...

Re: Yellow stem st albans area

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Can't be certain, but to me, these have the general looks of just emerging Sulphur Tuft - Hypholoma fasciculare.

Re: Possible Laccaria

I'd agree with Adam.

Although they don't seem to be particularly well endowed with "pale fleecy veilar remnants" at the cap margins, I'm still inclined to think that these are one of the Tubaria species.

Mike.
