  1. Splendid lot! 1)Myxo sp 2)a Willow rust for Nigel 3)I have no clue 4,5)Polyporus as you say 6,7,8) tiny beasts a coprinopsis sp + something with nice ring on stipe 9) russula sp 10)a lovely wheel! 11,12)+20,21)Polyporus ---lovely shapes 13) a Scutellinia sp 14,15) Crepidotus sp (need microscopy toknow more) 16,17) could this be a developing Jelly Ear, Auricularia as it looks more like a 'jelly-fungus' than Peziza to me 18,19,21,22) Postia --well done as I leave these alone. A nice variety of genera.

  2. Where are people finding all these fungi from? I'm looking around but can't seem to find anything! Well done Emily.

  3. Willow rust is Melampsora larici-elites. Very common. Good record.

  4. Sorry - keep forgetting about Autocorrect on this American rubbish tablet. Correct name of the rust is Melampsora larici-epitea.

  5. I especially like the Polyporus tuberaster
