Well Libby you've been able to capture a couple of fungi here! Images 1 & 2 are showing a Strobilomyces, one of the 'bolete' type fungi that stains red when damaged, if healthy. Though this specimen has been heavily infected by a parasitic fungus, Hypomyces sp., which is that white mould creeping over the dark surface. Therefore with images 3 & 4 the white is Hypomyces and the species of fungus underneath is unknow, though most probably a 'bolete' of some kind. As 'boletes' and Russulas are very susceptible to this parasitic fungus. would you be able to take down images 3 & 4 and then upload them again as a separate entry so a separate id can be put up for them please?
