Baeospora is an autumn

Baeospora is an autumn species. The equivalent spring species is Strobilurus. I think this is more likely but without a microscope I will not override your suggestion.

Feel free

Please feel free to put what you think as that is what the site is about,and I think it is important that ID agreements are correct and from what you have said it is unlikely to be Baeospora if that is an autumn species.I have found the pinecone cap a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked slightly different,but I suppose it depends on the maturity of the specimen and experiance,I will have to save up for a microscope and keep plodding on with my ID's.
