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

SorryPseudostipe is a short

Pseudostipe is a short stalk. S citrinum has no stalk S verrucosum has a long stalk and S areolatum has a short stalk.

Thanks for explanation

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.
