Fungii in the Ash tree

Rather than take space up in the main thread, I've moved to a new one!

Yesterday's photos:

And today's, which definitely make Harold's identification look spot on!:






Nearest I could get to looking at the gills... but you do gain a dead woodlouse for scale!

Re: Fungii in the Ash tree

The scales didn't look right for Hemipholiota. Hemistropharia looks a better fit. (It was described as a new genus in 2007).

There is confusion:

Wow...

All looks very confusing! The other sightings have been in the USA, is this relevant to what I've got here? Is it normally not seen in the UK?

It's a great shame that Wildaboutbritain has gone - there were some real experts there that would have nailed it.

Re: Fungii in the Ash tree

Will take some more photos later - they are briefly in the sun during the afternoon - will try and catch it today (was half set up yesterday when I got a phone call) they’re taller and have a couple of slug bites taken out today.

Remembering that it is only my best guess, there are 7 recorded British sightings:

I wouldn't worry to much about them being sunlit. You might get more detail under light cloud.

If you can take two similar shots with the same frame centres, about six inches apart horizontally, and post the images here, I might be able to get a stereo pair out of them

An approximate diameter (cm) of the cap and of the stem may be useful, once they have expanded fully.

They have a Facebook page for id help, are you on Facebook so I can copy you into the correspondence? (pm me your id if you are - there are six Harold Goughs that come up when I search!)

Todays photos:








Harold - I "think" I've got the image centre the same and about 6" apart, for the following two photos, so do you want the originals or are the low resolution forum versions good enough for a stereo pair?

I have nothing to do with Facebook. There is only one genuine Harold Gough.
