Description:

On rotten tree stump the lighting is wrong on the photo's as it was bright sunshine and it makes the caps look lighter than they actually were.The cap was reddish brown in the centre with veil remnants visible at the cap margin the gills were yellowish with a lovely deep purple/brown spore print.The stem was yellow and became darker brownish towards the base.They were growing in a large dense cluster.

A hypholoma but never really

A hypholoma but never really sure how to tell between them, book says Hypholoma lateritium often has veil remains which yours does but not sure if that is good enough to tell between species.
