Some species struggle to ID

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.

Please read this. "Help us to help you" FAQ http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49

In particular, good quality photos of all parts of the fungus should be shown. This means the gills, the stem, the stem base, and not just the top of the cap.

Photos of spores prints should be made in a good well lit environment, preferably daylight.
Its really hard to offer IDs without you doing your bit to make it easier. :)

Having photos the right way up helps also.
Here is a guide to how to rotate images.
