About 6 cm in height and cap diameter approximately 4 cm
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.
Whatever it is it's certainly not a Stinkhorn. It has a clearly defined cap, and the colours are wrong. Is this the only photo? We would need to see it clearly, including underneath, to begin to try to ID it.
In future always pick one fruit body and turn it upside down alongside the others before taking photos. Getting it in focus would be good too!
Hi. I have added a photo my husband took - unfortunately its from the top. Thank you for the tip about identification - I'm new to this but will get better!
PS It looks a bit like old and dry Liota lubrica.
Yes, from the original thumbnail I though it might be Leotia, but the stem texture looks wrong. I think it is the remains of an agaric.
Just to say thank you to everyone who is trying to identify these fungi.
