cap orange-brown becomes cracked, milk sparse stem brownish-orange in moss on unimproved pasture.
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.
L omphaliformis gets its name from its decurrent gilled shape (omphaloid) which this specimen does not have.
What on earth is it,should have taken more notice of the gills but I focused on the cracking on the cap and other features,I suppose convincing myself that it was this.Have you any ideas it was in poor wet mossy pasture very exposed acid,peaty soil.
Cystoderma amianthinum maybe.
Or C. jasonis?
Easy to separate with a microscope but without one the yellower colour of the gills is the defining characteristic(for jasonis). Unfortunately when older or waterlogged as this looks to be it is difficult to be sure.
I will look out for it in future and try and find a young example,it had been rather cold the previous night so maybe has a bit of frost damage.
