Clusters of fawn fungi at edge of mixed broadleaf trees

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.

Clusters of fawn fungi at edge of mixed broadleaf trees

These have been here for at least a few days. They are beneath maple and beech trees, next to a lawn. This is the north edge of the wood.


Hopefully the pictures will answer anything else but if not I will endeavour to do so.


Thank you in advance for taking the time to help a stranger.

Welcome to UK fungi.

Its possibly Calocybe gambosa but I wouldn't bet your life on it :) - it should have a mealy smell.

Sounds good for it. I'd record it as St George's Day mushroom. [Note the edibility warning in pink text above. ]
Time of year is also a factor. There are few if any similar mushrooms around this early.

We have had some similar in the grass verges around the lake where I work over the last week. Quite early for fungi.
