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.
Did it have a short pseudostipe?
Fenwickfield: I don't recall any conifers.
Flaxtion: I don't know what a pseudostipe is, but in any event I only have the photo from 2010

Pseudostipe is a short stalk. S citrinum has no stalk S verrucosum has a long stalk and S areolatum has a short stalk.
We'll never know, but based on habitat (rich, damp and mossy deciduous woodland) and lack of appearance of stalk as far as one can tell from photo, I'm thinking Common Earthball.
I don't like to disturb any wildlife, plants of fungi for id unless it is a formal survey or for local records and is essential; on holiday, I just take pictures.
