I was going to suggest that

I was going to suggest that this was a Webcap but I guess that was just based on the shape of the cap, and I couldn't find an example that was exactly like the photo. It is so frustrating when the photo (like this very nice example) looks so distinctive, but doesn't match anything in my book! I'm beginning to think it's time to extend my library! By the way, it is usually useful to have several photos to work with - eg one showing underside - and info about the habitat in which the fungus was found - though I still find most of them something of a mystery!
