    @Wildcanvas. PETER. My neighbour brought some fungi around to show me what she had growing in Her garden. Thats the one on the small table. I have been around and taken some photos. At first I thought Bracket, but its spreading around and into the lawn, so not certain its Bracket now.

    • Hi Lorna

      I do recognise it, I shall have a look at my books and ID it tomorrow. Sorry I did not answer sooner it’s been a busy summer for us.

        Peter, thank you. I know you are busy helping Claire, and didnt expect you to reply right away. Neighbour isnt back from Thailand until this coming weekend. Only posted it as neighbour didnt know what it was, and too many similar for me to identify it properly.

    First 2 pictures are of the same Fungus, the third one is a different fungus and was taken a few feet away from the other 2, and not so clear. The first 2 were in front of the tree, not actually on the tree.
    3rd one was grey in colour with a definite knob on top in the centre. Taken a few days ago when I went to feed a neighbours…[Read more]

    I am sure this is some type of Cortinarius

    @Wildcanvas On Sunday I put the top photo on the Village Green page. On Monday I went back to where I had seen it, to see if I could take a photo of the underside. Bottom photo, this was the only remaining fungi left. They were about 2 &1/2 / 3 inchs diameter. I wore disposable gloves to turn it over to look at. I have looked in my books, and…[Read more]

    This dropped off an Antirrhinum plant this morning. I have darkened the picture a bit as the concrete made the picture very bright. Beetle of some sort?

    FIONA, was it resembling this, as I cant see the front of it.
    Mine is an Elephant Hawk Moth caterpillar.

    I’m not keen on creepy crawlies, as you know, so this photo is from my camera at a distance.

    Out of curiosity, is this a Mosquito/Fly/or? Too big I think for a Midgie. It was on the bathroom towel, when I went to close the bathroom window for the day. I got the tub that I caught up the Butterflies to release outside, trapped it, and released it out in the garden.

    This Moth was in a plant pot holder. I went to empty the water out from the heavy rain, and found this moth.You can see the water line just under the Moth from when the plant pot was there. I have looked in all my Moth books, even searched via Mr Google. Its the best visual I can get with my camera.

    I put this on the Village page the other day with the other wildlife photos. Is it a larva of some sort? It was on a Nasturtium flower. Cant make it any larger with it going blurry.

    • Very difficult Lorna. I tried to enlarge and then smooth the image but it did not make a difference I am afraid.

      • Thank you PETER. I only have a small digital camera, and even being very careful how far to zoom in, I cannot get a really good close picture.

    This was clinging to our car at 70 Mph, I think it is a horse fly of some sorts

  • Lorna posted an update in the group Group logo of ID ITID IT 2 years, 5 months ago

    Whilst lifting seedling pots to see if roots were begining to pop through, I found this bit of bark/piece of wood/old tree seed. Took a photo, when I realised on closer look there was what looked like feelers. Its dead I thought, so got a couple of plant labels to lift it for a closer look and… off it flew!! I jumped out of my skin almost. It…[Read more]

    I found this caterpillar on a Calendula flower earlier. I have looked at Moths and Butterfly caterpillars, and am stumped as to which one of the many it could be. Sorry about the bright orange reflection from the flowers. The caterpillar was a pale beige colour.
    I have just been out to check, and there is no sign of it anywhere. May have been a…[Read more]

    • Hard to tell what it is Lorna. Can’t see any identification spots or lines or anything on it really to give us a clue. Had a look through my moth book but just can’t pick out anything definite. Sorry.

      • JACK`s , no worry. As you see it, thats all that it was. My first thought was a grub of some sort, then it moved like a caterpillar.

    I must be very dim – only just worked out what this page is all about!
    Peter here is one for you – taken on Mull at the base of conifers – looks just like dead oak leaves but some sort of fungi – any ideas?

    • Hi Jacqueline

      It is a liverwort of some sort, they are similar to mosses.

      • Thanks Peter – that is why I couldn’t find it in my fungus book! Will try to find out more from Mr. Google when I get chance. Still not had time to look at Moths but I will.

    @Jan Took this in Crieff last week

  • Fionamcg posted an update in the group Group logo of ID ITID IT 2 years, 6 months ago

    Sorry, this isn’t a very clear photo (as I dint like getting too close to them) it’s a caterpillar, bright green, with slightly lighter green down the centre (photo it looks white but it’s not) fairly small about 5-10mm in length but not round, it’s almost flat like a slater
