These caps appear to be rather domed for Inocybe, which tend to be somewhat conical, flattening with age & having a slight umbo.

Hi Brock, Thanks for

Hi Brock,

Thanks for response. I just tried MycoKey and it came back with Entoloma - Pinkgill, but non seem to match from pictures.

Do you recommend any good id books as I'm new to fungi and determined not to give up. :)

I have a Jordan, Collins

I have a Jordan, Collins Guide to Fungi, (Danish author, now probably replaced by up to date editions) and the Pan book, but would also recommend a fungi group as it is a very hands on type of identification, often requiring microscope work on spores, gill & cap sections + a good guru..
