Fungi on large Fir. ID help please

Recommended Posts

That's got to be useful to the mycoboffins on Arbtalk.


Personally they are so much better than me that I ususally sre requetsfor fungal ID, work out what I think it is, write it down on a post-it and wait for the right answer to come in. If I was on Pop Master, I'd have a 'One Year Out' t-shirt by now.


Not particularly helpful.


Gills and stem still required for me to be comfortable with an Id



As a 'guess' I would consider Pholiota flammans (the flaming scalycap) based purely on host type being coniferous.


Although these are usually on 'dead' stumps and more often to be discovered as singular fruit bodies rather than in clumps.


P. squarrosa has been noted on conifer according to the fungal record data base of the British Isles but much more commonly found on broadleaved trees.
