I think it may be Omphalina rickenii but not confident enough to add an identification so have agreed with genus only

Thanks - but I don't think

Thanks - but I don't think it's rickenii - I've just checked the habitat for that one, and it says woodland. This was growing half way up a mountain in a quite open but marshy area. There was lots of sphagnum around but I can't remember if this was associated with it, or just in one of the damp areas. I wondered if it might be fulvopallens or ericetorum (unless they are the same thing). I'm also finding some references to Lichenomphalia, but don't really understand how that fits in.
