Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
perhaps an entoloma but far from sure.
The 'root' and wrinkled cap are both features of my suggestion but not found in grassland unless growing from buried wood.

Had n't thought of Xerula but it does look quite similar if a bit small. I have only ever found Xerula in woodland though
Personally I have only found it in the wood also but it is known to grow in grasslands from buried wood. Although consulting books none specify woods but rather buried wood.
Little auk you suggested a waxcap was that because of how cap felt?
Thank you both for your comments. The cap did feel waxy and as the direct area was pickled with golden, parrot and snowy waxcaps, it was the first thing that came into my head but i was unable to find a potential fit in this area. There were several mature trees not far away (several species). Looking at pictures of rooting shank, it certainly looks about right!
we might convince Miked with that addition about texture ;-)
well it might be. will have to look out for it in these habitats.
My bad for not getting more info/spore print etc. I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled for any more of these in future! I dare say i might be posting a couple more from my 'never got to grips with' archive soon! :) Thanks both.
