These were growing beneath a pine tree

The first ones photographed with my mobile phone were found in August, but then I found some more in the same place on 11 Nov after a warm and wet spell. These, and help from Miked, enabled me to identify the species which conforms pretty precisely to the description in Courtecuisse & Duhem's Collins Field Guide (Fig #1643 to be exact).
