Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hello,

@Chris: Did you mean Tubaria dispersa? T. confragosa has a ring and much darker colours.

best regards,
Andreas

Why not T. furfuracea...
From the 'minature' images on the screen shot, 2 & 3 look like Ink Caps.

Sorry for the delay. Been down with the flu and stopped thinking about photos!

I'll try one at a time - might be easier that way.

Image 2 - possible id of Lycoperdon pyriforme or ink caps from miniature image

Also, Chris mentioned about reading the minimum for id needed - as I put in my first post, the thought of identifying them didn't cross my mind at the time, so I didn't comply with this unfortunately. If I do this in the future I'll make sure I get it from all the angles.

Image 5

(Image 6 was the one that worked already (sulphur tuft toadstools Hypholoma fasciculare)

So hopefully that's all 6 images now working :) Thanks for looking, and please don't worry if IDs not possible because I didn't take photos of the right parts.

Coming back to this one briefly. I must have had a blank moment - I meant Tubaria furfuracea. Though T. dispersa would, I agree, also be in the mix . . .
