Back to Powdery Mildew (proper fungi!) today.

Found yesterday in my garden - I pulled it up with a grass clump on lawn edge. Unfortunately didn't notice it first so didn't get all of stipe.
It has the right smell - mealy,wet flour , right gill spacing , right time of year for Calocybe gambosa (St. Georges mushroom) but it's small and not chunky.
However I can't think what else it could be.
This morning's spore print is white .

Found these boletes on a patch of grass on the corner of Maudlin Road and Magdalene Close .
Nearby trees are Sycamore,Hazel and Lime.
A few together rather than single ones (although photo shows one on its own)
Fresher one quite red others faded to pink ,stains blue , fibrous stipe .
I 'm thinking Hortiboletus rubellus but not sure.
Comments appreciated.

Had a search through some maggoty stipes for orange grains (as described by Laessoe and Petersen) and I think I found some which confirms H. rubellus (I think!)

Here's one that I didn't want to see.
Broad Bean Rust -Uromyces viciae fabae var. viciae fabae (so bad they named it twice).
It hit my spring sown Broad Beans but not the Aquadulce I sowed in the autumn.
Harvested them now and pulled up the plants for the compost bin. Beans inside pods OK but probably slightly lower yield.
