Description:

Colour noted at the time was yellow-ochre for cap and gills even though they look paler in the photos. Cap was about 20 mm across. The mushroom was growing alone in a large lawn in front of Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich. No special smell apart from fairly strong mushroominess. At first I though maybe a Coprinus plicatilis, but the cap was only pleated at margin...

At least I got the genus

At least I got the genus right then! I wasn't sure enough to go the next step, even though it was clearly yellow in colour. Thanks.

It is one of those species

It is one of those species that look totally different when young (with a bright yellow torpedo shaped cap)and when mature (pale cream with a yellow dot in the centre of a parasol shaped cap).
