Re: ID help Black mushroom

Hi and welcome to UK Fungi, I agree with what Chris has said. My initial suspicion was that the brown ones may be one of the Honey Fungus Species - but they do look quite small, so Chris is obviously right not to comment as they may well be another species altogether. Interestingly, the third image ...

Re: Identification please

Hi,

I think the photo has a bit of a colour cast to it, but would be reasonably confident that this is one of the Armillaria (Honey Fungus) species.

Re: Identification help (again)

Hi,
