Fungus identification help

Question

Can anybody help with the identification of the fungus on the picture below please? 

 

It was taken in a wood in England, in the autumn and the actual size of the head of the fungus are 5mm - 10mm across.

 

Thanks in advance

Dave

Dave, I am perplexed! I'm not an expert on fungi but just as a guide or starting point try Cystolepiota bucknallii. I'd be interested too if anyone had a precise definition here.

Cystolepiota bucknallii is the best I can come up with as well. If it was in a beech wood that would add weight to the hypothesis.

Thanks for the reply. I have had a search based on your suggestion but I think the fungi may be closer to Cystolepiota seminuda, but I'm still not sure! I'll keep looking and may try a site specialising in fungi so as to get a positive ID. When i do find out I'll let the forum know.

 

Regards

Dave

Thank DJ

 

The fungi was in a deciduous woodland in North Yorkshire (Bolton Abbey) and having done a little more research i think it may be Cystolepiota seminuda but still not sure. I'll keep going and find out for sure.

I also looked at Cystolepiota seminuda but edged towards Cystopepiota bucknallii because of the bluish colouration of the stems. It would appear to be between these two.
