Can't disagree. I'm not trying to push Armillaria as an ID, but neither Galerina nor Tubaria seem right either.
There are around 48 Galerina species, and 5 Tubaria species. The first step in any agaric ID is a spore print. :)

Re: Woodland Mushroom Identification

I think Armillaria is more strict on its timing than the other 2. It appears suddenly everywhere, then its gone. Just my theory, but I put this down to the huge mycelium of Armillaria, while the other two are smaller. Also, the other two are pure saprobes, so their metabolism is more local, being ti...

Could it be Honey Fungus?
No, looks quite wrong for honey fungus. What Mike said. Looks like a brown spored species. Was this found recently?
Yea found recently.
Norfolk, UK
A spore print would help. Honey fungus would be white and Tubaria would be a dull brown.

Re: Found under a bush, growing in soil.

That's great. We can now see the dark gills, indicating brown spores. On young specimens, the unripe spores are colourless, so the gills are pale, and they become brown with age, so their gills typically go from white, to pink, to brown. There are some white spored species that look quite similar, s...
