Mycena?

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.

Hi Andrew
do read this: http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49
surely it's fair to spend a little more time getting further details, when you're asking for others' time? Based on the limited info I can glean here I would (tentatively) suggest Mycena arcangeliana, was it growing on wood/twigs?
Mycena is a difficult genus, often requiring microscopy, see: https://mycena.no/, especially https://mycena.no/diagnostic.htm
Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris,

Will definitely try to provide more information in future.

It was growing in a beech dominated wood land and was growing amongst a few fallen beech trees so definitely would have been decomposing twigs though it was not on any of the logs, there were also a few yew trees about. I should have checked closer the substrate that it was on.

Appreciate the help.

Regards,
Andrew
