The second photo is the exact same mushroom 6 weeks later on.
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.
Humm interesting looks a bit like a hygrophorus, were there any others around to give an idea of variation and whether that stem is characteristic of the species
Yeah, there's a bunch of them growing on a pile of wood chips. I will take some more photos tomorrow.
There are 22 species of the genus on the British Isles list, however few of these are common. I wouldn't be over-eager to rush in and I.D. them. Regards
Thanks Flaxton, I have not see this species before.
Neither have I;)
White Melanoleuca with a scaly stipe; M.verrucipes, a typical wood-chip inhabiting fungus. First recorded in Britain in 2000 but now increasing. Thanks and regards
Interesting, will keep an eye open for it.
