Thanks Mark - good team effort all round.

I attach a couple of Mike Crutchley's pics - reckon the second one would do really well for a caption contest.

Best regards...David.

Just for information - everybody in the second photograph suggested a different name for the mushroom in question! A lengthier discussion took place on what a collective noun of a group of mycologists should be -- the most applicable came from Peter Roberts who suggested a 'dither' of mycologists!

I didn't see it in the 'flesh' but have seen Fiona's photos and I think it is possibly Stropharia rugosoannulata Wine Cap. Bruce named it as possibly King Stropharia. Not native to UK but often cultivated - I've tried with spectacular failure!
I will have to try and come up with an alternative name for a group of mycologists!

What about a peer of mycologists?

Other possibilities ---a caespitum, a clump, a tomentum

or my personal favourite "a troop of mycologists" - armed with lenses, notebooks and digital cameras :P
