Fungi clumped on dead wood

Observed: 5th October 2013 By: Steve_VSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and LichensSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

Big clump emerged overnight on a long-dead slice of Sweet Chestnut wood. Cap about 2-3cms - note the bi-coloured stem, orange then whitish under the cap. No noticeable smell. Ideas? Definitely not Honey fungus and I don't think Sulphur tuft either.


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

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

Looks like a Mycena spp

Looks like a Mycena spp Bonnets. Did it have any particular smell? Any sign of juice when stem broken? I'm not an expert on these but with stipe colouration would hazard a guess at Mycena inclinata Clustered Bonnet

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