Hi Mary,

These are probably a Psathyrella species - They won't be doing your plants ant harm - Probably the opposite (they break down organic debris into compounds that are easily metabolised by...

Hi Jono,

I would have thought it's Panaeolus semiovatus, the black spores we can see on the stem, egg-shaped cap and tendency to grow directly on dung are all typical.

Cheers,
Nick

P.S. In future...

Hi regor,

I would imagine it's Disciotis venosa. This species smells of bleach, hence the common name 'Bleach Cup'.

Hi all,

Yes, Oysters - You can clearly see gills which separates it from Polypores like Ganoderma.

Hi all,

Yes, definitely one of the Pezizales (I thought of Disciotis venosa, though the colour is a little vivid) rather than Jelly Ear.

Hi Charlie,

No, not a fungus - These are fruitbodies of a myxomycete.

Since we don't have a myxo section in the forum I guess we can just deal with them here :)

Great stuff!

T.cervina was known under the name Antrodia pseudosinuosa in the UK up until last year when DNA sequencing proved that they are synonyms.
There's only a handful of sites in the UK that...

Hi Dave,

It looks like Cortinarius triumphans, but that would require a Birch tree in the vicinity (I can see debris from every other tree!)....

Hi all,

I think we can rule out Hygrophoropsis (false chanterelle) because that genus has dichotomously branched gills - I can't see any branching on the photo.

Also, the 'true' Chanterelles tend...

Hi Dave,

Yes, the first is a Pluteus, though I'm not sure which.

The second seems to be an Armillaria sp. (not many Inocybe species have a ring on the stem).

Most of the species that get this large (L.vellereus, L.controversus etc.) are +/- white and have densely crowded, light gills.

Hi Andy,

1 (and probably 2) is Coprinopsis atramentaria

2 is too difficult, I'd need a photo of the gills/stem to get it to genus.

Hi Dave,

These are tough, I can only get them to genus with this info:

3 - Chlorophyllum sp.
