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.
The comparison with your other observation is striking. Were they at the same place?

The other observation was in a Scots pine wood belt at the back of my house last winter and there had been a hard frost the previous night.This was found just on a grassy area next to Christmas trees and fur on south facing grassy area rather sunny morning it was really cold the previous night but no frost.I thought that may be why they differ but I think that is the problem with fungi and why we find it hard to id them as there masters of disguise.When I first saw this I thought it was a waxcap but then after searching realised it was not.It was Flaxton who identified the previous one and explained the colour change due to a hard frost so I suppose we now have a before and after shot.
What a complex job it is to get an ID!! So interesting though. I must admit these photos match ones in my book and on the internet whereas I would never have achieved an ID on your previous obs. You are so right - masters of disguise! Thank you.
