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.

best wishes

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...

Re: Need some help identifying these mushrooms

Most funny is that Index fungorum lists BOTH taxa , Sutorius luridiformis and Neoboletus erythropus although both taxa definitely mean the same fungus (the one the picture shows). So, all is clear now, isn't it? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: best wishes, Andreas I am currently slowly writing up a mycota of Y...

Re: Possible Laccaria

The ring-zone obvious on both the fruit-bodies which show the full stem immediately rules out Laccaria.
At this time of year one would suspect Tubaria, but the gill attachment looks wrong - ah just seen Mike's comments. Perhaps Andreas will seal it

Re: Velvet Shank ?

Thanks. So the first two are Flammulina ? Fortunately my local nature reporting site hasn't caught onto the different varieties of velvet shank yet. The latter hollow tube is about the thickness of my thumb wouldn't that be too large for the stalk of a shank ? Yes of course it can be recorded as Fl...
