Scaly Tangerine Mushroom commented on by Jae Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 38 minutes ago

My pleasure John B. and thank you too for the kind and encouraging words.
It is true that I am absolutely in love with the kingdom of fungi, but I am in no way an expert on the subject. Just an amateur with a passion for mushrooms :) Over the years though I have learned to look for certain identification features which makes it a bit easier to find a possible ID. One other thing I have also learned from trying to identify fungi from photos and fieldnotes is that usually nothing conclusive can be drawn and in most cases you would need microscopic investigation to be certain. By the way I have enjoyed browsing through your spotting, such diversity and great notes to read. So thank you for sharing your beautiful spottings. Greetings Jae.
