Found on dead gorse. Appeared to be deflated.
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.
I don't think there is a lot of doubt that it is T. mesenterica, and this is its normal form (i.e. it is never inflated like a 'normal' fungus). I can't recall ever seeing it on anything other than Gorse.

Thanks for your comment. The only reason I said it might be this is that I find fungi quite difficult, and wanted to cover myself in case I hadn't quite got it right, but in my Roger Phillips it certainly looked like T. mesenterica!
