Found in deciduous woodland.Pores stronger orange colour than pic.and bruising blue.Cap about 9cm. Growing singley.
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.
In particular, trees?
According to Phiips, the habitat is "Habitat in broad-leaved woods, particularly with oak or beech and on calcareous soils."
As I recall, you're on sandstone there. If my memory is reliable (dubious!), then I have my doubts - trees would be supporting evidence for me.
The season is right, though.
Hi, thanks for your comment.The wood is pretty ancient with oak being most prolific followed by beech.As for being on calcareous soil I coulnt say but will now endeavour to find out.Im very new to mushroom i.d. so any help is much appreciated.
There are two features that split B luridus and B luridiformis(erythropus) and they are the network on the stem (or not) and the red on the flesh under the tubes. Both of these features tell you it is B luridus.
Have you a close up of the stem? Was there red under the tubes?
No there was no red under the tubes definitely more orange coloured.Don't have close up of stem other that what you can see.
Thanks for your help much appreciated.
