Hi Mark,

The first is Fuligo septica, not strictly a fungus - A slime mould (a little more closely related to us than fungi!)

The second is Laetiporus sulphureus

The first is Marasmius oreades - The free gills are a good hint, plus they should have a distinctive smell, like almonds.

The second is Agrocybe dura. The veil is distinctive and sometimes leaves a...

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, 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 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).

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.
