Description:

Growing on the ground under a pine in mixed woodland. Cap and stem extremely slimy. Stem and gills pale yellow. Spore print white. Possibly Limacella sp. Sorry the focus isn't great, the camera doesn't seem to like close-up shots.

Identifications

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Unfortunately the picture is

Unfortunately the picture is rather fuzzy, i wonder if you could have another go at this and perhaps keep this picture on there too as it does show the size well. It looks an interesting species so definitely worth having another go at the picture, perhaps try in brighter light might help with focussing.

Thanks for the advice, I had

Thanks for the advice, I had another go, but it's not much better. I'll go back to the woods when I can and try and find them so I can get a picture of them in situ. I'm going to have to throw these away soon!
