SP9107 : Clitocybe nebularis

taken 4 years ago, near to Buckland Common, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Clitocybe nebularis
Clitocybe nebularis
I'm pretty sure that this group of fungi growing in leaf litter beneath a hedge on Little Twye Lane as it enters Drayton Wood are examples of Clitocybe nebularis. Only by picking an example, taking it home and checking various features such as its spores under a microscope would I be able to ID it for certain, but its appearance and location make me fairly confident.
This fungus is quite common and is considered poisonous or at best "suspect".
The "nebularis" of its name refers to the clouded colouration of its cap.
