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.

Trooping funnel identification

Post by Roundthetwiist » Sun Nov 11, 2018 5:55 pm

Hi everyone ,

My first post! I live on the outskirts of Bristol in SW England and I've developed a new found love of fungi this autumn! I am totally inexperienced when it comes to ID'ing fungi ! Looking to buy sell books this coming week!

After the rain we've had (finally) over the past couple of days I put on my wellys and went for a walk in mixed woodlands opposite my house to see what I could find.

Came across this Clitocybe looking mushroom which was much bigger than fools funnels I found recently...would love to know your thoughts on it!

There were only too growing under the tree one had been savaged by the wildlife and this one was plagued by spiders so I just knocked it to one side to take a pic

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

I think your find does have the general looks of Trooping Funnel - Clitocybe geotropa.

Common sense is not so common.
