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.
Both of these species appear in my books to grow on decaying /decayed wood. Was there any nearby?

My guidebook describes the habitat for both these species in the same way. However this narrow stretch of lawn between new Hotel wall and established hedgerow has recently been landscaped from disturbed ground and so perhaps the spore was still in the ground.
