Kew Gardens on woodchip under Cornus sp.
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.
Am I mistaken in thinking S.aurantiaca has had name change (2008) to Leratiomyces ceres?

I think there is still a S aurantiaca but the one found on woodchip is Leratiomyces ceres.
The Collins Guide has them as the same species???
In this case I would say Collins is wrong. What we are finding now on wood chip is not the species that was originally described in the middle of the 1800's but as yet that description still stands. It is probably Stropharia thrausta a slighter and more squamulose version. Until the names are sorted out the wood chip finds are Leratiomyces ceres.
Thanks for that. Where would S aurantica be found?
Leaf litter in woodland I think.
