Waxcap (Hygrocybe)

Observed: 17th September 2009 By: CandlesnuffCandlesnuff’s reputation in Fungi and LichensCandlesnuff’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

Not sure if this is H.ceracea, H.chlorophana, H.laeta or something else! Bit hard to tell from this photo! I think it was about 3cm across and growing in a cemetary. Don't think I made any other observations.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

There is a Waxcap key here: but given the range of possibilities I recommend you add an ID as a generic Hygrocybe.
