Cortinarius trivialis going mad on the lawn
I hope this doesn't come across as rude Nelly, but are you 100% sure that's what it is? . . . . a close up & underside shots would be useful.

Someone was arguing the reverse of this the other day :) Nearly all our grassland sites were once woodland...

A cotton hanky is suggested by most people but Versterholt et all "The Genus Lactarius" let it dry on the gills. The most common change is to yellow, but orange, green and others are possible. The colour is ...

Re: Little brown job

Thanks Roy. It is distinctly two-tone. The fruit-body size is a little small but I've tried alternate pathways, eg if I missed a smell, but they don't fit at all, so I'm fairly confident I have a match now, especially following your comments. :) I'm really confident there were NO caulocystidia, I ex...
