It help's if you can photograph the gill's and stem too,as it is difficult to get a correct ID by cap alone,as some species are very similar but the gill's or stem can narrow it down.

Mushroom ID

Top tip. But I only saw one specimen in this churchyard and I would need to have picked it to get photo of gills. Thought I should leave it as nature intended! I see that Ink Cap is edible but poisonous, if you've been drinking alcohol beforehand! Strange!
