Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Thanks for the comparison photos of true and false chanterelle miked. And especially for the fat brown slug who features prominently in this post - that really put me off my boxing day dinner! ;)
Anything to oblige! Not sure if there is a slug expert on ispot at the moment although I seem to recall one way of telling the large slugs apart is to stroke them and see if they wiggle or something like this.
That sounds delightful Mike. I can't wait to start stroking slugs! ;)
It's certainly one of the big round-back slugs, Arion species, A. ater, A. rufus, A. vulgaris (=lusitanicus) or A. flagellus. From coloration, I'd guess A. rufus or A. vulgaris. If you'd stroked it and it had started swaying from side to side and twisting as it does so, it's either A. ater or A. rufus - the other two can't dance! Should you ever meet a Leopard Slug or one of the other keeled slugs, stroke it gently at the front and it will probably wave its mantle at you (the flap of skin that covers the head when it contracts).
Meant to add this to ispot but not sure the music helps!
