Single fruiting body found near pond on acid grassland at Norden, near Corfe, Dorset.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
With those scales I'd doubt if it was C. plicatilis. Maybe lagopus, but it's difficult to get a definite ID without seeing more of it.
I would have gone for C.lagopus but I do feel gills cap size ect are needed too
First time I've posted and I'm amazed by the speed of reply - even before I'd edited the photo to the right way up!
Sorry about the lack of gills - it was the only specimen and I didn't want to pick it. Cap size was approx. 50mm diameter.
Magpie fungus?Coprinopsis picacea.
C lagopus looks good to me! Thanks everyone.
