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.
what did it smell like?
Gracious, do I have to smell them also? I will go back and get a wiff.
Most fungi will have some type of smell from fruity, perfume,almond,oatmeal and some are rather rancid ie Stinkhorn's rather apt name.I also find it is important to feel the cap and note if it is greasy,dry sticky ect,plus gill's,stem if hollow,stuffed,fibrous and habitat which tree's were around or pasture.The more information we add the better chance we have of getting an identification.
this particular one may have a very distinctive smell if its what i think it is.
I will report back tomorrow.
It didn't have much of a small; slightly musty; slightly like an ordinary mushroon that I would buy at the store. Sorry, that's all I got although I did take some photographs of some others just like these, but the smelled the same. I can send all the full size photographs to an email address if required.
I thought they might be clitocybe odora given the colour but they have a very distinctive smell of aniseed or similar
No, sorry, nothing like that at all; can send a sample if required.
Miked - Should I rename it a possible of the ID that you gave or leave it open. I did crush three of them and got the same slight odour only.
Might be an idea to record the C. odora as a possible ID and see if anyone agrees with it.
OK will do.
Sorry, I meant put clitocybe odora i.e. the full name so the automated system can pick up the name when you click on 'get recommended'
I agree with you on what it looks like, that cap colour is quite distinct. I have had people in a foray group who can not smell the aniseed overtones when I myself and the rest of group clearly can. May I suggest the aniseed scent is subjective to each individual.

Gills in photo are missing the blue-black serrated edge of E.serrulatum and cap is much to light.
