It may well be Agrocybe

It may well be Agrocybe erebia and I suspect there have been a few of these on ispot this year however I can't remember ever seeing one myself and there are a few other things that look a bit similar so I don't want to confirm that it is this species.

Hello Mike, This particular species was identified on site by Geoffrey Kibby who is the current editor of the British Mycological Society and several books on British Fungi (who was present to supervise a course on Fungi identification at the centre). I hope this lends some weight to the observation and helps you in your work.

I have agreed although it

I have agreed although it should be Geoffrey Kibby who is doing the agreeing or IDing in this case! Don't suppose you could persuade him to occasionally look at the fungi on ispot could you?

At the time he had not even

At the time he had not even heared of Ispot, so I tried my best to introduce it. He thought it was great but not sure if he intended to join.
