Not one I am familiar with. If, on maturity, the gills liquify as "ink" then it is not that species.

Mycena haematopus Bleeding Fairy Helmet Mushroom

Also known as the Bleeding Mycena or Blood-foot Mushroom, the broken stem exudes reddish purple juice.

It is also one of the many bioluminescent fungi but this is not visible to the dark-adapted human eye.

We found this colony yesterday in a mostly deciduous woodland.

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, triple flash hand-held.

Psathyrella candolleana on Wood Chips: Cracking Shots

It is a year, this month, since we had a willow felled. We had much of the wood chipped and placed in a heap, under the remaining trees in the wooded part of our garden. Much much rain penetrates to the pile and there has been very little in recent months anyway. That has not prevent a succession of interesting species, each in some abundance, on these chips. Each has been the subject of at least one topic here.

This species started to emerge about a week ago, appearing at first as compact, very crowded groups of white mushrooms. One striking feature was the way that the caps, as they matured, fractured for some distance in from the outer edge. I have still not found images elsewhere with such extensive crazing. Two unusual features in a mushroom resembling commercial Agaricus were the lack of a ring on the stem and the stem being brittle. This last feature led me to identify it as one of the Brittlestems, Psathyrella candolleana, a common species of unknown edibility. (For definite species identification the spores should be examined).

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Coprinopsis lagopus Stereo

I have posted a number of images of this species in recent weeks but I thought that these captured the typical appearance very well. As previously, they were on willow wood chips. They were like this at 6.30 this morning. I wanted to show the caps fully expended and revisited the colony three hours later. The caps had expanded to give horizontal, flat surfaces but not one was upright and intact.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/8, 1/10 or 1/13 second at f8, ISO 800, hand-held.

These are cross-eye stereos. Single frames with be uploaded separately tomorrow.

Harold

Coprinus lagopus Single Frames

These are from the same session as the stereos I posted yesterday but are chosen as the best individual frames rather than for their stereo effect.

Young Honey Fungus Mushrooms

This morning a group of us looked for interesting fungi in a wood, This was one of the more photogenic species.

Edit:I can confirm that it was on Beech, the other species of mushroom on it, to be posted tomorrow, being specific to Beech.

The stereos are crosseye.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Porcelain Mushroom Oudemansiella mucida

This was on the same recumbent tree as the Honey Fungus. They were on the side of the trunk where another huge log lay resting on it. So it was in shadow and there were a number of very long, very tough and very spiny bramble stems blocking my line of sight.

I got my wife to hold back the bramble stems while I took the first few shots. I then when around the shading log to get a view form the other side. This time, I levered the brambles aside with my boot while I took the photos. After all that, I thought one small wound oozing blood was much less than there could have been.

Although the caps were wet from the rain, they are always shiny and slippery due to copious, transparent mucus.

The species lives only on Beech trees.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11 except last: f8, ISO 800, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye. The last image shows a more diffuse colony further along the same trunk.

Phellinus pomaceus Cushion Bracket

I shot these in grounds of the local university on Sunday. I had wondered whether I should have taken my 100-400 zoom with me but I used it at 146mm for the higher ones of these. The first two, of young brackets, were taken with my standard 50mm macro lens.

Shadows have been moderated in PS, apart from the second one.
