Wax cap St B 1a
Wax cap St B 1b

Yellow cap approx. 8mm, slightly sticky, with darker bottom margin, a slightly paler yellow, slightly sticky stem with yellow gills that go down the stem as far as the bottom edge of the cap. This one was one of about 6 on a shaded, mossy grass-covered grave in St Brelade's churchyard. It was the only group of this type seen in the whole 'old' churchyardin an area of greener and mossy grass - much of the graveyard is quite sandy with a thinner covering of less mossy grass.
