Description:

I've been watching this army of small white fungi for over a week. They appear to growing in the soil rather than on wood or another fungus.
Caps are now starting to open.
The closest thing I can find is Asterophora parasitica but there are no other visible fungi and these don't look right with their fat stalks.

Identifications

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

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

Species interactions

No interactions present.

3cm is ok but if they grow

3cm is ok but if they grow any taller you may need to rethink.

Thanks for your comment

I shall keep my eye on them and report back.
Will probably add more images if the form changes.

Quite,

A thick bulbous stem for this for this fungi maybe ? But it is similar .

Size

These are still there and have not grown bigger.
Another local wood has Lyophyllum connatum which has caps up to 10cm.
