    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.

    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....

    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.

    Helmet cams

    I've used the Drift X170 for a while and had no problems with it at all. It has some useful features and also the noise of the saw doesn't distort or become ear piercing when played back (which i believe some other cams have a problem with). It has a good field of view and the picture quality is good. I believe that you loose some picture quality if you put it on a big screen/tv. The quality when played back on a laptop is fine. You can also take HD still shots with the camera using a wristwatch device which i think is pretty cool... One of my friends has an oregan one and he thought the quality of mine was better....
