Similar to FUNGI 2 but smaller, more bell-shaped cap and lighter brown colour. The fibers are less apparent, and it does not possess the dark and pale brown rings at its edge.
The reason it this fungi is does not possibly not Galerina hybrida is because it does not appear in the GBIF records in the UK.
This fungi is mostely surrounded by stonecrops, mosses and invasive plants. The entourage suggests the soil is acidic. It is exposed to drought, cold weather, rough winds, and sunlight as it is not shaded and is unprotected from environmental conditions.
It is located on a rooftop on a hill near the English SW coast.


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

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

I think we would have

I think we would have difficulty confirming it is a Galerina from the single photo let alone a species unknown to Britain. What details makes you believe it might be G hybrida?
