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

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

Think i might go for mycena

Think i might go for mycena galericulata for these, they look as if they have pale or white gills.

I would agree with that.

I would agree with that.

Alternatively ...

there is fl769's new identification as ... oh, ... Mycena galericulata.

Another person who doesn't read the ettiquette rules.

Well it can be slightly

Well it can be slightly confusing with the difference in level of certainty, fl769 was saying they were 'sure' its Mycena galericulata whereas I was saying I thought it was this species but I was 'not certain'. Actually this is a fuzzy area (the level of certainty) on iSpot that internally we often think about but so far not found a better way of doing things without making it a lot more complex.
I am sure we will revisit this issue again after the major chunk of work on image uploads and mapping that is underway over the next few months.
