Baildon Moor on a very damp foggy November morning. In amongst grass and some heather.
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.
Thanks for the ID. Simply looking at photos is another option Galerina Calyptrata? I need to think more about ID when I take the photos - can take several to help with ID but only "publish" the best one.
It is possible it is Galerina calyptrata, which is why I said that microscopic confirmation is desirable.
But G. calyptrata is much less common in this habitat than G. pumila and the cap tends to be slightly brighter orange-brown.
For the past 16 (?) years I have been running a student exercise in an area of upland waxcap grassland - they do the collecting, I do the identification. During this time I must have looked at some thousands of specimens of G. pumila (and, yes, some G. calyptrata) and I am pretty confident this one is G. pumila.
It's great that we can benefit from your experience.
