Talking of Conocybes Adam, here's one I photographed yesterday; following generally accepted current terminology, it's a Pholiotina of course.
It's growing in compost in an old plant tray. I had spotted it a few days before and assumed it was either C. rugosa or arrhenii both of which I had recorded before at home growing in similar situations (and both are quite common). The only odd thing I noticed was the very dark brown stipe below the ring.
Under the microscope (a dry mount, looking down on the face of a gill at low power) the problem was instantly solved: it had 2-spored basidia which means it can only be one species Conocybe (Pholiotina) teneroides. One I have only seen a couple of times previously. To make absolutely sure I also checked the spore size and shape of the cheilocystidia.
The British Checklist still follows BFF Vol.3 (1982) and splits this species into two: Conocybe blattaria and percincta. More modern treatments, FAN6(2005) and FE14 (2009) conclude there is just one species.

Hopefully I am posting in the correct place and photo will attach :) Typhula fistulosa (syn. Macrotyphula fistulosa var. fistulosa) Pipe Club past it's best. Same location as November 2016 when it was looking much better. About 14cm tall, in damp scrub woodland with mainly Salix and Malus around

Scarlet Elfcup Sarcoscypha austriaca first sign of them in this location (Brynna Woods NR) this season. On probably Salix in very damp area. Microscope work on specimens from here in recent years all proved to be this species. Only confirmed record in VC41 as far as I know in recent years for Ruby S. coccinea is Coed y Bwl NR. Anyone finding this latter species?
