Mycena Stipata?

spot on

I have had a look and I think your spot on Janet maybe I was willing it to smell of ammonia.If you want to change the identification I can then agree with you.

Thanks

Tentative suggestion

It was only an idea and I am far from confident with Mycena!

Mycena

I am the same and find they all look rather alike except for the really obvious ones.
