Its a Geoglossum, not sure

Its a Geoglossum, not sure its possible to say its G. cookeanum as there are several other species looking rather similar. Think there is someone on ispot who is an expert on them so might comment.

It should be this as we had

It should be this as we had some fungi experts with us, although at this point I was concentrating too much on photos and not listening properly and they did mention something about it possibly being a hairy earthtongue! Hard to tell from this photo!
