Description:

I know this is a fairly common fungi ,especially on tracks/paths.
Wondered if it has a common name.
Also whether it grows due to rabbit droppings,though it's regular proximity to rabbit dung may just be because rabbits like paths too.

Identifications

Does that i.d. still make this fungi ?

No

It belongs in a different kingdom to Fungi, but many iSpot users post observations of it in the Fungi and Lichens group, which probably receives more attention than 'Other organisms'.

As far as I am aware, it doesn't benefit from animal dung.
