Found in the needle litter beneath what I think is some sort of silver fir tree, two or three similar sized specimens were present. Spore print was very feint white. Cap was dry, margin clearly inrolled, gills a creamy colour and very crowded - adnate-to-decurrent. The thick stem is slightly fibrous and a little bent, but short and much paler than the cap. Not much to report on the smell. I can find a few options which match the cap colour but nothing with the same distinctive inrolled margin.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Might suggest clitocybe

Might suggest clitocybe nebularis, the colour looks a bit odd in these pictures, c. nebularis normally grey

@ miked

Thanks for that suggestion. The colours in the photo are pretty accurate - the cap had a definite brown tinge to it, not the grey you would expect from Clitocybe nebularis - although I would say that the inrolled edges definitely have a greyish colouration.
