Identification help (again)

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.

Identification help (again)

Found this growing at base of Beech tree. Can anyone help to identify it. The Woodland Trust site indicates it may be a Common Inkcap. Is this correct?

Hi,

Definitely no inkcap.

This looks like young fruitbodes of Hypholoma fasciculare - Sulphur Tuft.

Regards,
Mike.
Common sense is not so common.

Agree with Mike, and a gill shot should always be supplied as it would confirm this beyond doubt.

Thanks again folks. Very difficult to get a photo of the gills here due to the growing situation, but will keep this in mind.

Are you not allowed to pick one and turn it over?
