Hello People,

 

Anybody got any ideas on the ident of this fungi found around the base of a Scots Pine??

 

I have recommended DNA testing for the client involved due to the target area of the tree in question, but would still be interested in peoples opinions. I have my own hunch however when I showed it to a peer he came out with an unexpected alternative.

Hi David,

 

My guess was Dyers Mazegill although I am no expert on fungi so was just going through a process of elimination.

 

My peer stabbed a guess at Dryads saddle although I doubt this because of the host....

Pretty sure this is not dyers mazegill, and I can see why dryads saddle has been offered due to the squamules (cap scales)

 

personally not seen the saddle fruiting on coniferous tree species, are there any broadleaf or shrubs species around that it may be growing on?

HI,

 

No this was growing within 100mm of the Scots Pine stem.

 

I also thought of Dryads Saddle but dismissed it because of the host.  

 

I have considered Dark Honey Fungus..

 

I'm pretty sure my client is happy to go for a dna test so hopefully I will have the answer soon.

Dark honey fungus (Armillaria ostoyea) has gills not pores.

 

Might be worth considering Sarcodon imbricatus, if only to rule it out.

 

if you do find out what it is, an update would be appreciated.

Hello Gents,

 

Got the DNA test back from the lab and this funghi was Xerocomellus chrysenteron..... 

 

Thank you for your time, help and effort in this matter
