Unknown fungus, Heeswijk-Dinther, Netherlands I could use some help identifying this one, don&#039;t know where to start. In return, I will offer you this single angle only. <br />
Particular interesting feature is the thick pointy hat. It was growing on moss. Europe,Heeswijk-Dinther,Netherlands,World Click/tap to enlarge

  1. It looks like it has gills (Order Agaricales), and they look decurrent. The base looks like it could be swollen. My guesses would be maybe Paxillus sp, Lactarius sp., a confused Paralepista sp., or Ampulloclitocybe sp.

    I don't know. Hopefully someone from your area will recognize it?!

    1. Or, it could be a polypore with gill-like pores. Posted 3 months ago
    2. Thanks a lot for the help, will check them in detail tomorrow. May also post them on a dutch FB fungi group. Posted 3 months ago
      1. Oh, good idea! Hope you get an ID :). Posted 3 months ago
        1. Facebook agrees with you: likely Lactarius sp., and possibly Paxillus sp. Can't be determined further from this single angle. Which of course brings an important lesson learned: they should really get better at this. Slackers. Posted 3 months ago
          1. Ugh, total slackers. I'm questioning their dedication. Posted 3 months ago
            1. Exactly. Gills. Angles. Smell. Taste. Floor type.
              All they do is demand. How are they experts if I have to do everything!?!?

              1. They are too high maintenance and needy, in my opinion. Posted 3 months ago
                1. Nail on the head. It's like going to the garage with a problem, them asking: have you tried completely disassembling the car, cleaning every part, and putting it back together again? Posted 3 months ago
                  1. Don't forget that you would have to lick the car. Flavor is important. Posted 3 months ago
