Description:

In pine wood in a trooping group,rather dark so hard to get good shot's.Small yellow,fan shaped head on a pale whitish stem,does suggest that it is rare but have looked on websites and Jorden book and cannot think it is anything else,still have sample.Maybe because it is so small it's not noticed.

Spathularia flavida

The needles and twigs in your photo look as if this was found under Spruce. The two times I have found this I have found it under Abies.

Correct

Very dense plantation of Abies growing in large amounts ,the only reason I found it was that I was lying on the ground watching a Red squirrel in the tree dropping the cones on the ground but could not get a photo of it,but I was out fungi hunting not Squirrel.It is saying it is rare,which area did you find your's as I wonder if they should be recorded with the Association of British Fungi.
