Re: Pluteus cervinus?

Hi Bob
I would say "yes", but I have a feeling that P. cervinus could be a species-complex. I might have mis-remembered this. I'm sure Andreas wil have something useful to impart.
cheers

Re: Penicillium?

Hi Chris I would say definitely not Penicillium or similar as there are no penicillate structures and conidiogenesis is not terminal. One for ASCOFrance methinks - Walter Gams might be able to comment. Make sure you put "whale" into the thread title - that should attract attention! I did a flick thr...

Re: Today's finds - East Devon

Hello, well spotted! I think it is Stropharia squamosa, nowadays called Leratiomyces (or Stropholoma) squamosa. best regards, Andreas I still think this is old Armillaria , Andreas. Perhaps A. gallica as per: http://www.damyko.info/ForumA/files/120610_armillaria_gallica_161.jpg If it's L. squamosa ...

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

I'm happy to go with Andreas' opinion - should have had more confidence in my initial thoughts . . .

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

Thanks for going to that trouble, Bob. I'm happy that it is probably isn't my first suggestion, and am now seriously wondering about Auricularia mesenterica, young of course. If it is it should look more typical in a month or so . . . But it doesn't say Peltigera to me at all.

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

I'm not at all convinced by the Peltigera theory. The habitat seems unlikely and those are totally unlike any rhizines I have ever seen. Those are hairs (in the mycological sense), far too thin and separated to be rhizines - this is what I would expect for the latter: https://www.flickr.com/photos/t...

Re: Possible resupinate such as Peniophora sp

The bottom one - although one cannot see enough of the underside to be certain - looks to me like Daedalea quercina. As for the smaller brackets - very young Chondrostereum purpureum?

Re: Possibly Irpex?

Hello James
my money would be on Schizopora paradoxa which can look exactly like this. Compare with some online images, e.g. https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drewniczk ... a1_(6).JPG.

Re: Fungus on Holly

Nectria and associated genera form a very difficult area, now more is known about them. Ideally you need: to know whether the perithecia have been formed on a stroma (probably 'yes' in this case) measurements / descriptions of asci and ascopores a thin section through a perithecium a description of...
