The one with the slimy cap and brown edged gills was Hymenopelis (Xerula) radicata.

I had never realised that this could have these brown edged gills before so something to remember, apparently they don't always have them.

Steve Commented

And then to the clump of small twisted grey things growing on soil (see photos above) that Maud found, there was a fair bit of speculation in the field including Resupinatus applicatus,
which I have never seen growing on soil, getting it home I very carefully removed all the soil from around the base to try and see if there was any woody debris that it could be
growing on and there was nothing that I could see. I did a spore drop to try and get some spore colour and they really were not inclined to drop any. 
Taking a piece of gill and examining the edge under the microscope I could find no cystidia, although this year I have struggled at times to find cystidia on Crepidotus so this is not
an absolute evidence of lack of cystidia. 
The spores I found on the gills really did not fit with the suggestion of Resupinatus applicatus either, I am really struggling with this one and wonder if anyone has any thoughts of
directions I may wish to go in with trying to get somewhere. I hope to have another go at it tomorrow.

Tiny Black/ Dark Brown Pinheads Lichen? Fungus? on decaying wood.

Mycocalicium subtile

from

Rob Yaxley

The pinhead turned out to be Mycocalicium subtile. It has dark brown, simple, smooth ellipsoid ascospores,
and is a sunny lignum specialist. Although it has a lichen-like form, The LGBI text notes that it is not lichenized.
Most of the existing records are from Scotland, and this is the first record for Norfolk as far as I am aware.

Here you can see the forestry work of the beavers.

They only cut through enough to make the trees fall but leave enough tissue for the tree to survive.

This provides the beavers with fresh food

The second was what I decided was Mucronella calva after much consideration. I could not decide whether it was a clustered clavarioid or a toothy resupinate. I tried to make it into Kavinia alboviridis (FTE1 p.1041) which is very rare. Although it had what appeared to be a 'cotton wool subiculum', it gave no colour with FeSO4 and had smaller spores so it wasn't. I have two reservations with M. calva - height was up to 2mm but FTE states up to 1.5mm, and the very few spores I could find (it was deteriorating quickly even on Saturday evening) appeared to be non-amyloid although otherwise consistent. Did anyone else take a piece? M. calva would be the 4th Norfolk record. I dried what remained.

Further to this Tony then added

Looking at your image of Mucronella calva I am increasingly doubtful of my identification -
it really should not have branched or bifurcate 'teeth'. If the team wanted you could try to get a sequence. I will write it up as aDNA proposal.

Notice also the dulling effect on the surrounding tissue compared with the glossy greenness of unaffected tissue.

cf Leucoagaricus badhamii flesh

From
Tony L

I did spend time on Saturday evening with two fungi. First, the stout reddening agaric found by Sean. Everything pointed to Leugoagaricus badhamii except:

  • Very large stature. The cap had not expanded but FN gives stipe diameter as 3-6 (-10)mm - ours was 15mm.
  • Marginate base to stipe.
  • Bruised orange (not red) when fresh although that evening it only did so at the apex (reddening elsewhere). Any bruising quickly went black (as L. badhamii).
  • Cap went grey with KOH (3%), not green (although possibly greenish-grey). FN states it should go green.
However, there really isn't anything else it is closer to (in Kibby or FN). It was too young to have spores but I offer it for DNA sequencing if the team thinks that is justified.

If anyone is reading this who is new to fungi this is where it's fascinating to see the development of an identification dependant on people's different knowledge and experience.

Inkstain Bolete (Cyanoboletus pulverulentus)

From Tony

Using Kibby ‘British Boletes with key to species’ everything fits except for a small discrepancy
with the stipe being only yellow right at the apex, reddish/pink for the rest, whereas yellow is
slightly more extensive in the description.) So probably best NOT to record it, just in case.

Tony L followed this up with

I will make a few more comments later but the bolete on the bank beyond the gate onto Holt Lowes was
B. luridiformis (formerly B. erythropus). B. pulverulentus is generally darker and more elongated and more
likely in woods. The finely punctate pattern on the stipe is fairly indicative of
B. luridiformis although in the
small specimen we found these had barely separated. Also, the blue staining is usually a darker blue.
And the final confirmation? Geoffrey Kibby, who was with us when we saw it, said it was
B. luridiformis!

to which tony replied

Thanks for your comments Tony (L). The total lack of red dots on the stipe had me going down the wrong path
but I always thought at the back of my mind that the specimen was perhaps a little young.

The spores were wrong for Skeletocutis. It must be a colourful Postia stiptica as the spores matched that species.
I guess the orange colour could have been a fungal infection?

Tony's initial comments on these

I took home some of those numerous small mycena (I think M. speirea was the initial thought) on the large flat stump towards the end of the day (in Holt CP). At first glance, I thought they might odd-looking Delicatula integrella & I tried to keep an open mind . . . they were very jelly like by the time I looked at them this morning and microscopy revealed nothing I could be convinced about. Did you get anywhere?

From Steve

Then to the group that has taken up much of my afternoon, this being the dramatic collection of small white fungi low down on the moss covered stump. They gave me much to think about as they looked nothing like anything that I was familiar with, they were very delicate but fortunately I had packed them with a lot of moss and placed them in the fridge as soon as I got home. They looked to my eyes very much like Mycenas so I used a combination of Mycena S.L. and Kibby vol 2. For the reasons outlined below I am very tempted towards Mycena olida.
The caps averaged 9mm were ivory white with a yellowish tinge to the centre of the older specimens there was slight interveining between the gills of the older flatter specimens. Taste insignificant smell not really noticeable. They had 2 spored basidia, with pleurocystidia in amongst the basidia of a similar shape to the cheliocystidia which fitted the cylindrical, subclavate or fusiform cheilocystidia of Mycena Olida as compared to the slightly similar looking Mycena hiemalis, which apparently has fusiform to utriform cheilos. Spores were well within the range for both M. olida and M. hiemalis. Examining the stipe I eventually managed to find caulocystidia and these fitted with the description and images of those in Mycena S.L. Clamps were absent or at least I couldn't find any, which is right for the versions with 2 spored basidia.
This is a completely new to me species and I am well outside of my comfort zone with this one, I am hopeful that in amongst the packing and sorting that Yvonne will have had a chance to look at the ones that she took and that they travelled better than, from his comments, those that Tony M. took, if so hopefully she will be able to give me some pointers as to where I went wrong. Over to you Yvonne.

Yvonne comments so far.

Sorry but I didn’t have time to really examine the specimens thoroughly, just a brief look under the microscope but I thought I could see some utriform cheilocystidia. I didn’t take it any further, didn’t even get the Mycena book out ! I must admit they didn’t look like Mycena in their growth habit and like Tony I did wonder about Delicatula but I didn’t even look up the microscopy on those, I think they have cystidia but not utriform - again I’ve never seen them grow like this.

A further comment from Yvonne

I managed to have another look at the last of my specimens this morning. I completely agree that the growth habit is more Delicatula, but the gills were deep and without any bifurcation and with only feint cross veining. The cystidia were utriform and according to FN Delicatula has cylindrical cheilos, if any at all, as it more commonly has none.
Been a very busy few days so probably haven't been able to give it the brain power that it warrants but have decided that as the last remnants of collapsing fruit body has now been given that last final flight from the bedroom window it is time to finally put to it to bed as a "remains a mystery".

The comment above about developing thoughts on an id also apply to Harvestmen
as you can see by the discussion below.

Harvestmen Sp

Phalangium opilio

Tony L commented that it might be

Mitopus morio

Anne then sent her pictures to Vanna

who commented

Your harvestmen are either Phalangium opilio or Mitopus morio females. These two are tricky to separate. The crucial feature
isn't visible in your photos - a pair of small tubercles above the chelicerae would make them
P. opilio. The shape of the ocularium
is also useful but again not quite clear enough. I find these two really frustrating at times! On balance (gut feeling)
I'd go with
P. opilio but then I've only seen one M. morio female and that was last week at Marsham Heath.

A further comment from Vanna

The first one clearly shows the pair of tubercles above the chelicerae that make it Phalangium opilio (female).
Second one this area this isn't visible in either photo but the leg femora all look angular in cross section and
have several rows of acute black tipped tubercles which makes it P. opilio female as well.
