Fungi ID please

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.

Could anyone identify the fungi in the images please. They were growing on a rotting trunk in woodland in East Yorkshire.

Many thanks

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Your fungus is a Mycena species.

Could well be Mycena galericulata, (Common Bonnet), but Mycenas are difficult to ID from photos alone.

Common sense is not so common.
