Further photos taken with a bit more detail. It's amazing how much the fungi have changed in a couple of days! 4 or maybe 5 groups like this in a small area. Bark chipping as stated plus mixed leaf litter - oak, ash & chestnut.


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

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

    Likely ID
    Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
  • Psathyrella microrrhiza
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
Species interactions

No interactions present.

A great photo

But not too helpful for identification.
What trees were around? The tags mention oak, but some leaves don't look like that.
The gills/pores, stem type, any discolouration on bruising/tearing, and odour are all important.

Agree with Amadan - great

Agree with Amadan - great photo but need much more info for identification

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

Can't remember exactly what

Can't remember exactly what other trees are around but there is definitely bark chippings there. I'll have another look! !

Bark chippings

Can come from far afield, bring in unexpected fungi.
