Growing on short grass where sand dunes border a rocky bit of coast.
The fully backened cap makes me think it is H. conica but the stem, which shattered and felt gooey when I picked it, appears to be hollow and looks more like H.conicoides.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
