Too early for a trooping funnel ?

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.

Too early for a trooping funnel ?

Hey totally new here so hope I'm getting it right

Found this with a small group. About 10. Under Scots pine and oak in woods near Newcastle .

It's quite firm . Stout stipe. Has an umbo and is buff off white. Cap is about 8 cm across. Was wondering if this is an early trooping funnel. I've seen them before but not his early .

Any ideas ? Many thanks

Please take a moment to read Edibility Requests
While you haven't stated you want to eat this, the fact it is on a kitchen unit, not in its wild habitat, and that Trooping Funnel is an edible species, leads me to think you are intending to eat it. Perhaps as your next post , you could ask for an ID for a non-edible fungus? Oh and not take it home unless you intend to do microscopic dissection or chemical tests.

Best wishes
