Unidentified fungus at Bradfield Wood, Suffolk

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.

Unidentified fungus at Bradfield Wood, Suffolk

Post by Bob Hazell » Thu Nov 28, 2019 10:27 am

I photographed this small cluster of fungi at Bradfield Wood, Suffolk on 25th October. This is an ancient broad-leaved woodland and the fungi were growing beside one of the grass pathways. I assume this is a group of maturing fungi and suspect therefore any measurements are not particularly helpful. The cap of the largest specimen was approx. 3.5 cms diameter with as shown in the photographs a robust stipe, thickest at its base. The fungi were an off-white colour but the youngest specimens appeared to have a light brown/beige cap. The cap had a rather textured (artex-like) finish - I did actually wonder if this was usual or some form of mould. The gills are pretty crowded and white. I would appreciate any thoughts. Many thanks.
