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.
Collins, Sterry and Hughes says this species 'often uniquely coloured green' so I guess you are correct.
Looks a wonderful specimen!
The more I know the more I realise I don't know
It is, in fact, H. psittacina.
The "cf.", as generally used in naming species, would indicate that it is like H. psittacina but that it differs in some way and may not be the true species.
This, on the other hand, is perfectly good H.psittacina in young, fresh state.
(being picky, but it would be better to have the correctly formulated name in the iSpot database. I would then add agreement.)
Sorry,I know little about fungi and less about naming them.I probably clicked on the fist name on the list not realising what the"cf"stood for.I hate to admit total incompetence but how do I change the name once it has been entered?I'm just trying to draw up a species list for the multitude fungi growing in my fields.
