  1. Thought you’d find it of interest. 🙂 I’ll pop back later in the year to see if there are any localised bleeds.
  2. Fine image Ben, great capture of colour and morphology 👍
  3. woodland beech possibly 70 years, this was a third order branch.
  4. Again at Burnham Beeches.... Brown rot and white rot at two ends of the same short beech wood volume. Fomitopsis pinicola (red banded polypore) and Pannellus stiptica - (bitter oysterling)
  5. Interesting question. Why do you ask and what do you think are the most important fungi to know? Any knowledge or experience of ones you’ve seen on and around trees? Thats a good starting point.
  6. Hello David Sarcoscypha sp. either ruby elfcup (S. coccinea) or Scarlett elfcup (S. austriaca) spore size under microscope needed to determine which one.
  7. I couldn't really comment on this tree without seeing the whole tree in context to its surroundings and the condition of the crown and twig extension growth. Anecdotally I've had oaks with decades old associations with dryadeus basal colonisation stand through significant storms, I've also had trees blow over in high winds with dryadeus. Tree vitality and exposure is key.
  8. One of I’ve seen recently at Epping Forest. 🤔

  10. Psuedoinonotus ‘dryadeus’ but i think that’s what you meant?
