This is not a Crepidotus but

This is not a Crepidotus but a Panellus species as we can see that it has a discernable stem. This is a common mistake as otherwise they appear quite similar.

maybe

It maybe Panellus mitis which was one I found a week past sunday this was 2011 when I was rather new to fungi as I had only been observing them for 2 years I class myself as still being new maybe in 25 years I may have the hang of it and all the names will have probably changed too but i still find them so interesting. I will change the id so it goes into the correct carousel

Thanks
Sheila

I have just tried to add a new id and ispot does not allow me to do so, but i think you probably can as I think this was put in place to stop people changing photographs and identity when people had already agreed on the original id.
