New one for me, using Fungi of Temperate Europe to ID it. I love the chart they use.
Anyway, good marzipan smell, and black on gill edge and larger than average.

Hymenoscyphus aesculi (Velen.) Baral & E. Rubio

One to look out for on old leaf-veins and petioles of horse chestnut leaves - we have few fungal Aesculus specialists in the UK. Late August / early September seems to be the best time, especially after all this rain we've been having. Not to be confused with the two related (and superficially very similar) Hymenoscyphus species on ash petioles: the harmless H. albidus and the cause of ash-dieback, H. fraxineus - see https://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php? ... uli#p12318.

More images at http://www.ascofrance.com/forum/64834/h ... us-aesculi.
Cheers
Chris

Elaphocordyceps ophioglossoides - Snaketongue Truffleclub: -

These examples are from this year's fruiting of a colony that regularly appears year on year at the same location.

    My first post... hello everyone!

    Stumbled across this evening on a forestry track.

    The monumental monograph of the Orbiliomycetes has now reached the publication stage: http://www.ascofrance.com/search_forum/64533
    I have been given access to an advance PDF, as a number of my collections are included, and the amount of information (and work!) is more than phenomenal. 150 Euros is of course expensive, but in line with the pro-amateur sympathies of many modern mycological experts there will be a free PDF version - in some ways more useful than a hard copy as it will be ultra-searchable.
    My first success using the work has resulted in this find (confirmed by the lead author) - Orbilia dryadum:
    Orbilia dryadum 0a.jpg
    2nd British and 1st English record, and only found as I had 40 minutes to kill before catching a train back to Huddersfield!

    Out of interest I checked, and this is the 782nd of my Yorkshire Fungi "plates", which represent 42% of the fungi I have recorded in the county (mind you I have been at it for nearly 40 years . . . )
