If the gills turn dark

If the gills turn dark green/yellow then fasciculare it is but if there is little green and more grey then H capnoides is more likely

Sulphur tuft ID

Many thanks for your info - very helpful. Unfortunately my specimen has gone to a vile slimy mess in the bottom of a plastic bag so I will have to get another to check the result of the change of gill colour before I revise my observation.
