No more than a couple of centimetres across, these were attached to a rotting log (along with several bracket fungus). The caps were quite slimy, olive-brownish in colour and with inrolled edges, the gills were a pale yellow-orange shade, very crowded and leading to a felty, short stipe of a similar colour but with feint black scales. I've never seen these before and initially I thought they might be Oyster mushrooms, but they seem a pretty close match for the Panellus serotinus I've got in my Collins guide


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

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