Re: Ear like Fungi ID please

Thank you Leif and Mike for the info and ID, very grateful. I have only been collecting information and IDs on the fungi that grows on 'my patch' which over the years you and others have IDd in WAB days. I think, due to our wet Spring and Summer, that I am not seeing the usual fungi and most that ha...

Ear like Fungi ID please

There are a few clusters of these on a track through beech trees. the ground is peat/rock far amount of moss. they have a rubbery feel but break very easily, so brittle and no particular smell.

Small white fungi ID please

There is a long line of these amid beech litter at the side of a burn. Smell is very faint mushroom. gills very pale beige/cream
On my close up photo I have upturned a cap so that you can see the gills.

Re: Fungi in compost

I went through the google link images and the closest ones were of Cudoniella clavus, especially the slight green tinge, however the cap on the ones in compost were more bell shaped and what I could see of the stem seemed to be a very pale beige colour and a bit flakey (not the right word). none of ...

Re: Fungi in compost

No, as I said, they appeared some with caps and were gone within minutes of me taking the lid off the seed tray. These photos were the best I could do with the macro on my camera - I even tried taking a photo through a magnifying glass. They stopped appearing when the sunflower seed started to devel...

Rust or eggs

I had taken this photo to get ID on the fly and noticed the orange spots on the petals of the cuckoo flower. Is it a rust? Had various suggestion - pollen, too regular and round - eggs, not like an insect would lay eggs on petals which are short lived. Someone suggested maybe a rust. The problem wit...

Life's Sayings

Here is three for you:- Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "Holy shit.... What a ride!" Life is like a bath the longer you're in it the more wrinkled you get! Life is short smile while you still have...

Re: What is this tree?

I think it could be a prunus (cherry tree), especially as it seems to be in a town, therefore planted by the council

Re: Identification Request for Fungus in Grass

I must have had a senior moment as I did not bring one back with me. So dashed out to collect one to test spores. All gone! Sheep were obviously chomping at the grass and trampled the fungi - just shrivelled up bits left. Still at least I know it is a Inocybe. Something not had here as yet. If more ...

Years ago I did a website with an unfortunate name, search engines bought up pages of undesirable websites. Chatted with other web developers and they suggest the above, as searches...
