Any help with identification would be much appreciated. Sorry for the poor condition of the fungus and the poor microscopic images.

2. Gills : light brown, spaced.
Cap : Brown, dry, shiny. 100mm across.
3. Stipe : Concolorous, 80mm x 13mm. Solid.
4. Smell : Very strong, mushroomy.
5. Spores : Ovoid.
6. Spore print: unclear.

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately only the one (spores) image is showing in your post.

Either you didn't actually upload other photos? - or you have fallen foul of the "bug" which is causing problems when uploading multiple images to the forum.

If it was the latter, I would recommend reading, and following the directions in this post in order to ensure that all of your images appear.

Mike.

Second attempt but this time I've added no captions. Fingers crossed.

Hello,

this should be Megacollybia/Oudemansiella/Clitocybula/Collybia platyphylla.
If the spore characters fit, what I can't check at the moment in my holidays in Croatia :-)

The gill colour is due to dryness and overmaturity, but the spores are colourless or at most yellowish, not a brown-spored fungus in all case. There are no brown-spored fungi with subglobos smooth spores as far as I know ....

best regards,
Andreas

No need to apologise Mike - congratulations on finding one of the few mushrooms currently in parched Britain ;)

cheers
