I.D Please

Recommended Posts

Your help please Fungus taken in my home county of Herefordshire UK.

So far I have been unable to I.D this, all searches that I have carried out for blue fungi UK return nothing like this.

Could be wood blewit, Clitocybe (Lepista) nuda.  Did it have a thick, stubby stem?

Hi John

Yes it had a stubby stem that was white with tinges of grey.

Then I think that's a good bet for ID.  It would be nice to have a second opinion though.  I know a bit but I'm not an expert on fungi - a one day course as part of my master's degree in 1973 doesn't qualify me ;)

Hi John

 

I'm happy with your I.D, having been given a name I was able to do another search and came up with the image below. good enough for me.

 

Many thanks.
