Inkcap Sp Coprinus Sp?

Became

Coprinellus radicellus

From Yvonne

Coprinellus radicellus were the tiny Inkcaps on the dung - these were a nice find as this was a new species to Britain not that long ago.
We have found it in Norfolk before but not that many records.It needs microscopy to identify and there are similar looking species
but can be separated by the shape of the setules on the cap and the germ pore of the spores.

KenHillEyelash181221-1

Eyelash Fungus with Black Hairs

Common Eyelash (Scutelllinia scutellata)

KenHillEyelash181221-2

Eyelash type fungus on dung.

After careful removal of the substrate and turning it sideways there were no visible stellate hairs. I tried this a second time and managed to remove all the substrate (surprising how tough they were)
and there were no visible stellate hairs.

Thus

Cheilymenia fimicola

A few more pictures to support this id

A bit iffy this one

I thought the tiny cyphelloid fungus on the grass was Arrhenia retiruga but Tony L thought it was Calyptella capula so that one is a bit iffy !

This one I thought might be P. fimicola but it had a central germ pore which separated it out.
