Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

Nicely done. Is there a reason for starting a new 'Fungus of the Day' thread? Regards, Chris Thanks. That's a good point - I just clicked on the one above, without realising it was a new thread. Perhaps Adam can sort this one? Hi, Looks like Gary had inadvertently started a new thread. - I've combi...

Re: 2nd try at uploading ID request....

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your fungus is a freshly emerging example of Fomitopsis betulina - Birch Polypore. Until recently, (2016), the scientific name was Piptoporus betulinus . The name change came about as a result of genome DNA sequencing in 2016, but it is still shown as Piptoporus betulinu...

Re: Some ID help Please

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Nice find! - This is one I've never yet managed to find, despite several years of looking!

It's Rhodotus palmatus - Wrinkled Peach.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: ID please-various woodland mushrooms

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. No.1 Looks like a rather old and dry example of one of the Lactarius (Milkcap) species. Are they drops of whitish "milk" that can be seen on the gill shot? (Can't decide whether it's that or maybe tiny whitish stones). Either way, I wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to ...

Re: Trooping funnel identification

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I think your find does have the general looks of Trooping Funnel - Clitocybe geotropa.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Small Brown Fungus

Hi Chris, Don't know if you will have seen it already, but there is another Tephrocybe key in addition to Moser, that's available as PDF download if you have electronic access to BMS Journals: - "The Genus Tephrocybe Donk in Britain, PD Orton. - Bulletin of the British Mycological Society - Volume 1...

Re: Can anyone confirm if I am correct please?

Hi,

Have you ruled out Lactarius salmonicolor?

I've never actually seen that one myself, but, like L.deliciosus, it does have the orange pits on its stems (whereas L.deterrimus doesn't), and I understand that it can get to around 20cm diameter.

Regards,
Mike.

Re: Fungus on Gorse, help with ID please

Hi Mike Thanks, had considered Sulphur Tuft as possible from appearance but then failed to find the association with Gorse . . . . Hi, You can find known "associated organisms" by going to the Fungal Records Database of Britain and Ireland website: - http://www.fieldmycology.net/FRDBI/FRDBI.asp Onc...

Re: Fungus on Gorse, help with ID please

Hi,

Looks like Hypholoma fasciculare - Sulphur Tuft.

Gorse, (Ulex), is a known "associated organism" for H. fasciculare.

Re: Lichen ID, help please.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your lichen is one of the Peltigera species (Dog Lichens). Unfortunately, I can't be more specific than that. - There are numerous Peltigera species, and I don't know enough about them. :oops: Perhaps someone else might be able to be more specific. Regards, Mike.

Re: Foray Today

Hi, Your first might be Suillus luteus - Slippery Jack, although the pore surface on that one is usually yellowish to varying degrees. There is another similar looking Suillus - Suillus viscidus - Sticky Bolete, (which I am not familiar with at all), but which does seem to have a better fit of the m...

Re: Large yellow mushrooms in a wet chalky lawn

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. Your fungus looks like one of the Paxillus species. As it is growing in an open grassy area, It's likely that it's not Paxillus involutus , which prefers shady / wooded areas. More likely to be Paxillus cuprinus (or possibly Paxillus ammoniavirescens or Paxillus obscurip...
