geotropa

I ruled out geotropa as that (I think) was growing nearby, clearly quite distinct. The main difference I noticed apart from size & shade was the angle the gills meet the stem. In geotropa there's a clear angle whereas with these here the gills curve smoothly onto the stem (image 4). I'll post what I think was geotropa separately and link it with this observation

..so the others might just be younger versions of this
