Fungi - Forest of Dean

By MikeA  
I can across these as it was getting dark, they were grouped at the base a large oak tree.
ISO 100 f/8 for 20secs.
Off to find a book to identify them unless some would be kind enough to save me the trouble Wink

Thanks Terry for the ID.
The nearest I could find was the Shaggy Inkcap, but they did not quite match-up.

Hi, Great shot. As stated before they have the common name of Magpie Inkcap (Coprinopsis picacea) and look stunning. I spend most weekends hunting mushroom and have yet to see any of these. Thanks for sharing.
