Fenwickfield, out of interest (and it's one of the very few wee catches with the iSpot system), when you gave your agreement for this ID and several other fungi species I posted lately, were you agreeing that it was indeed the species or agreeing in the initial assessment that "It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain."?
