I wish Fungi John had come over from WAB to WABI he was great on fungi, and Venger, brilliant on spiders Duncan
Fungi John is on fungi.org.uk/index.php set up by ex WAB admin members. Some of the real experts in their field also joined. They also include rusts, Smuts and mildew, Lichen and other types of wild flora trees etc (those that get or have fungal disease). They are very picky about how you ask for ID, no just posting a photo fungi, you have to show gill/pores, colour, smell, what colour when cut through etc., you have to show exactly what you have shown here. A number of times I have been ticked off for not saying where it was appearing - under what trees where in the country, ground type etc.
Thank you Alison for your input, it's because of people like yourself that knowledge is gained and shared, Best wishes and welcome to WABI Duncan ps I have checked out Rooting shank and I don't know how I missed it in my Blacks Nature Guide or my Roger Philips Mushrooms it's so obvious once it is pointed out, LOL
Don't worry Ash, I totally missed it too. I prefer to stay with this site it's like the old WAB site with people helping to id things, hopefully, people will post for Id's more and keep the site turning over, I try to help where I can, Duncan
