A group of the same fungus as yesterdays upload. Still haven't got a clue what they are! Loved the beautiful shape of the main one with the upturned brim, they were so delicate.

Can anyone recommend a good fungi book to help identify these gems, been all round glasgow and couldn't find any. Would like one with photos rather than illustrations.

Nicely composed showing off the group well.

These are Haresfoot Inkcaps - Coprinus lagopus . I found lots of them last year, also growing on wood chippings.

Thanks you lot! Tony, clever chap,do you just know that or do you have a good book? If it's the book - pleeeeease pass on the title, if you just know, well you're too clever, and that's not fair!!!

Nice grouping and well lit! Don't know any good books but I find increasingly that the Internet is a good place to search for expert identification usually with photos. At least it is for insects. (I would certainly have guessed inkcaps judging by what's happening to the older ones.)

I have a Collins nature guide book, which has decent photos however this particular fungus is not in it. Whenever it's not in the book, I generally browse google images until I find something similar and research from there.

Tony, thanks I will keep trying and in the meantime use internet, can't believe I never thought of that.

This is a beautiful group of delicate looking fungi. I find the website very useful. There are images which have helped to identify most of the mushrooms I have found.

They look a lovely group, and the ground texture makes a lovely contrast to their delicate almost silver colouring
