Yellow Stainer

Yellow Stainer

Observation - Yellow Stainer - UK and Ireland. Description: These 'mushrooms' grow every year on an old turf playing field and I've never been able to identify them. Presumably they're not edible as no one picks them. Several suggestions and six samples later I've managed to get one to very positively stain yello

These 'mushrooms' grow every year on an old turf playing field and I've never been able to identify them. Presumably they're not edible as no one picks them.
Several suggestions and six samples later I've managed to get one to very positively stain yellow. It seems you need to cut a very fresh base on a young specimen - the older ones didn't seem to work.
