There is an interesting Stropharia - S. rugosoanalulata probably not native I think only UK record from 1910 but maybe introduced in timber/woodchips from north America.
Local mycoligist is cultivating:

Rich Wright is very clued up on Fungi - he was on Walk where we found Parasitic Bolete!

Hope interesting to you!
