Myco mayhem

So faced with an evening of microscopy and a wet lunchtime what should one do? Ordinarily I would have worked a small backlog of flies but since I worked three inverts last night and only got repeats I decided instead to poke around in the woods this lunchtime. Keying fungi can require patience but since I'm home alone with the manchild I'll have lots of time after he's off to bed. Still there was some easy pickings to be had.

Xerocom(ell)us sp. with Pinus

Box set

Common Rustgill

Deer Shield (not new)

Gymnopus peronatus - Wood Woollyfoot (not new)

Melanoleuca sp.

Gymnopus erythropus

Russula sanguinaria
A nice few additions that might pull me back in line with 3 spp./day to finish in September. I should be able to cross that threshold ... hopefully.

922 Gymnopus erythropus Red-legged Toughshank
923 Gymnopilus penetrans Common Rustgill
924 Melanoleuca melaleuca Bald Knight
925 Russula sanguinaria Bloody Brittlegill
