Hi Dorset. Mushroom...
Thanks for this. I think it's actually Purple Jellydisc. It was quite small (<1.5cm), as can be seen by cp with the Candlesnuff in the photo, and was found on a felled dead beech trunk.
If people respond to my id with just a generic name (as you have here), does this indicate that it's not really possible to be exact about the species from the photo / info supplied? Just thought I'd ask!
Hi Pam, yes generally it implies that as in this case A.sarcoides v's A.cylichnium requires spore examination to be certain. However sometimes it may be that they recognise the Genus e.g. Russula but with 150+ UK species it difficult to know them all even IF there is enough information provided for an expert to be certain.
All given ID's are subject to error/ommissions. Please seek independent verification before acting on ANY advice given. BE SAFE =)
Thanks, that's really helpful.
