On fallen rotten Oak partially submerged the wood had turned green in some area's


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

rotten wood

When I have found them it has always been on partly submerged rotten wood in silted up area's of the stream and always on Oak so fingers crossed you find some.

You have some powerful agreers but read this -
I came here because I was about to post but my pics are awful (lighting). I need to go back and also collect a specimen, to be certain.
Thanks for Scottish monthly - can you retitle it with Month/Location?

Your right it cannot be identified 100% correctly without microscopic work,this can also be said for quite a few fungi but I would have normally put it on as likely and not sure as can be as I don't normally do that unless very sure. I must say I think this is a problem for lot's of fungi posting's and the data collected on ispot has a lot of postings that are agreed on but we can not be 100% without professional microscopic work and we should only is sure as can be if there is no doubt.

Yep - I think it's a broader problem - that not many things can be IDd from a photo (and I have been told off a few times!)
But I did notice that this one (not yours specially) has been avoided by the (other!) Fungi experts.
Thanks for the correction in Scotland - you scuppered my option to modify mine later. An interesting point, clicking on Reply removes options for later editing. But I'd rather you join in - thanks Sheila.
Good wishes then..
