Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi,

Found a large group of these in a beech dominated wood land, on chalk soil, all hiding under boxwood trees.

Hello,

this looks like Tricholoma terreum to me.
Though there are only willow leaves to see on the foto - which would suggest rather Tricholoma scalpturatum/argyraceum - I think it is T. terreum ss. str.. May be there were some oine trees nearby?

best regards,
Andreas

Thanks Andreas, yes there were some pine about 2-3 meters away. Definately look like Terreum now that i've had a look at it in the fungi guide.
