Beginner needing help to ID fungus

Observed: 17th October 2011 By: Joe30Joe30’s reputation in Fungi and LichensJoe30’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

This was about 15cm tall found in some undergrowth in an Oak woodland. Hope someone can help.


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

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

Thank you.

Thank you for helping to identify this attractive fungus. Is this common or quite unusual as it's not in the small book I have?

Joanna Nationally relatively

Nationally relatively common with over 1200 records but only one of those records are in S East Yorks. I have a few records just up in N Yorks.
