i found this fungi amongst some grass, in a fairly sheltered area, some help with I.D would be great
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.
can you tell me what the distinguishing features make it a wax cap please?
The genus Hygrocybe includes some of our most colourful species. Intra-species colour variation means that this character is a less important aid to identification than cap and stipe texture, which may be dry, greasy or viscid (slimy). Spores are white. Most species favour unimproved grassland, particularly where it is grazed or cut; they fruit in late summer and continue through to very late autumn. Hope this helps. Regards
