Pretty yellow fungi in leaf litter by a woodland path.
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.
If you still have a sample (and a hand lens) check the gill edge for a darker colour.
My sample has gone dry! The spore print was almost invisible - possibly a faint cream. I can't see a darker edge on photo 5 though.

I have looked through a hand lens and cannot see a darker edge, 3 photos added, the last 2 taken with flash. What does this mean?
It means that M flavoalba is likely to be correct.
Not enough for an agreement though!!
Enough for me ;)
I have several other Mycena (I think) to identify, do you know any good guides please? I have Jordan's, Phillips', Collins', Blacks', DK Pocket Nature, Natural History Field Guide and A Guide to finding Fungi in Berks, Bucks and Oxon. I use Wild about Britain and Fungi of Southern England websites and Google. None of them seem to know as much as you!!
Thanks for the vote of confidence. Try http://home.online.no/~araronse/mycenapage/mycenapage.html It is far cheaper than the £100 for Fungi of Switzerland vol3 or the £80 for Funga Nordica or £90 for Mycena D'Europa.
How beautiful! What a terrific site. I shall hardly dare put up another Mycena!
You are right - the books are beyond my purse and probably beyond my understanding too.
Thank you very much.
