I'm hopeless with plants and fungus and need to get better. In the meantime can anyone help?

I can't, but somebody here will probably name it within 10 minutes or so, they did for me over the weekend Smile

Cheers Ade. I generally trust your judgement and I'lllet you know what I get from the wildaboutbritain forum.

Cheers Adrian. Unfortunately Leif has his PM turned off so I can't contact him. Looks like I can rely on the ID as a Common Bonnet though. Thanks folks!

Have a look on his very thorough website. There are hundreds of fungi photos so I'm sure your specimen will be there somewhere.
