Pedicel Puffball by Glynn

Pedicel Puffball

How did you conclude that it is L. caudatum? That species is exceptionally rare, and there are no confirmed records for England. It does not match the description in British Puffballs, Earthstars and Stinkhorns by Pegler et al. and I think that what you have is L. perlatum.

The Gathering by casson

The Gathering

It is more likely to be Psathyrella hydrophila, as it is growing in a large clump on wood. The species you mention is quite small and I think grows on soil with moss.

Yellow Fungus by dwright

Yellow Fungus

Looks like a Larch Bolete, Suillus grevillei, assuming you are in the UK, and Larch trees were nearby. I guess that is Wood Sorrel nearby too.

Fungi by Mike Gray


It's definitely not H. nigrescens which has a straight stem, and a more conical cap. It is probably a Deceiver, Laccaria laccata, though it's hard to be sure from a photo. L. laccata is rather rubbery, unlike H. nigrescens which is more brittle.

Very atmospheric. I think we had the same weather here (Beds) last week. Leif

Prawn Cracker Fungus by maljohns

Prawn Cracker Fungus

There are several species that could fit the picture. The most likely is Crepidotus variabilis. The flesh is brittle, and the gills are pink. Panellus mitis is more rubbery, and the gills are whitish. It grows on dead conifer wood.

Amanita muscaria by pcjackso

Amanita muscaria

FWIW it'ss not a Russula as they never have a ring. It looks like an Amanita muscaria, Fly Agaric. Leif

After the Tide.... by telfordtrio

After the Tide....

Nice idea. Reminds me of that abstract artist. I think her name is Bridget Riley but I might be mistaken. She does very similar images with black and white lines. I saw an exhibition of her paintings, and came out with a headache! I suspect your image will have the same effect ... Leif

End of the day by zook

End of the day

I agree with the others. Remove most of the lower half and you'll have a lovely image. I don't mind the slope though. Sorry to be a bit negative. Leif

IMO it's a Honey Fungus. Leif

For Terry L by daffydill56

For Terry L

That looks like a Geastrum triplex. The inner cup between the arms and the 'egg' give it away. Nice shot. Leif

Go Ask Alice by A_Harrison

Go Ask Alice

Coprinus comatus, commonly known as Lawyer's Wig, or Shaggy Mane. They are edible when young, before they start deliquescing (that's the correct terms for turning into black liquid). Fairly common, and photogenic as you have discovered.

Madam Damselfly by TeresaH

Madam Damselfly

That's a good picture. The smooth background is very nice though I might not have cropped the right so tightly.
