The posh name is Mycena Acicula,a tiny species generally found under conifers amongst the moss.

Yes Alison,it's Cressmoss..well,it will be in December Wink
Kit card as a reflector...small diffuser,ably held in place by my co-'shroomers,lots of mozzie repellant,Tesco carrier bag in order to avoid wet knees (didn't work ! )

F5.6 manual mode
1/6th sec with tripod
ISO 200
F/L 105mm
W/B cloudy
Pattern metering
Converted from Raw in C1v4
Curves adjustments & cropped in CS3.

Thankyou for looking,nice to see lots of 'shrooms on site now,the D&D club is quickly expanding.

The moss is a great indicator of just how small this Mycena really is Janet.

I always wonder how they survive on that long slender stalk.
An excellent capture with some beautiful colours for the background.
