Many thanks for your additional comment. It's made it even more confusing as it seems that we have three names for this fungus now! But maybe that's common in the world of fungi.
Anyway, thanks for your contribution.

Thanks to jhn7 for re-definition of this fungus. Can't recall where I got the name from. I clearly need to arm myself with a better guide, however!

Thanks for that useful link.

Thanks for that useful link. No problems that it was two years later than my original posting! It will still come in handy.
