Helpful

It is quite important to get a photo of the stem and gills too,this help's other's to agree or rives your id as so many fungi can look very similar with just a vie of the cap and it is a shame when you have put it on and had no response.

of course, sorry I thought

of course, sorry I thought Sulpher tuft was obvious from miles away. I'm going out now so I'll get a proper set of pictures

one

There is one other type which is very similar and that is why I was asking it is called Hypholoma lateritium as so many are mis-identified.I am not doubting your identification just would feel happier to agree with those extra shots,hope it is still there
Thanks

there's loads of it

there's loads of it everywhere just coming out, along with glistening inkcap and the strange one I posted yesterday that looks a bit non-descript but smelled odd. It's the same Bee bank where I found the giant oysters in Jan, stacked logs heaped over with earth, done about 7 or 8 years ago, so seemingly a perfect growing conditions - there's at least 150 yards of this..

pic 2 has a Nomada fucata far

pic 2 has a Nomada fucata far right
lots of brand new bugs as I craned down to get these shots, a tiny yellow 22? spot ladybird, and a larger bug that looked like a pied (as in flycatcher) ladybird which I've never seen anywhere
also a new reddish bug running about with the Rhyparochromus vulgaris, and a family of woodlouse spiders. Plus a bizarre spider running and jumping in the grass (looked a bit like a pardosa-type) running and leaping 5-6 inches, covering as much distance in the air as on ground, leaping whenever I bent over to try to get a shot, which I did, some in mid-air - but a REAL jumping spider, not those ubiquitous Salticus lightweights..
There's no end to this stuff that's steadily appearing in this one area as the spring progresses..

Thanks for the photo's Jeremy and I have agreed with your id.Your right about log piles it is amazing how many insects live there plus fungi excellent places to look for both,I found loads of ants under the bark the other day but too fast to photograph.
