I am a retired Tree man. There is a very good site for us as Arbtalk co.uk which has a fungus ident thread and an App available for tree fungi.

Thanks Geoff, I was initially looking at Crepidotus so getting close'ish.
I was reluctant to harvest this for a spore print (something I am just starting to do) as it is a single sample but may have to as part of the learning curve. This should be a white print from memory?
Have to find some black card.

Managed to do a spore print and managed to take a few more photos so wondered if it was a Peeling Oysterling but I have not seen an gelatinous covering but as this is susceptible to brackish water (the log it was attached to moved during the recent high tide) I wonder if this affects the colouring of the body and covering?

Just outside the lane gate I spotted something bright and golden among the leaf litter. Growing from the stump of a cut down sycamore (I think, I didn't check, there was a hawthorn taken down there too)

Is anyone able to identify these? They were given to me by a neighbour who found them on her dog walk, so I said I'd try. Can anyone help out? Or so I need to do a better picture?


Would I be right in thinking mottlegill Mushroom?
