Sulphur Tuft (???)

Please ignore filenames, if you can see them.


This mushroom was found growing in grassland in Dunham Massey Deer Park, Cheshire 20th Sept 2009.


The stipe is brittle and when bent splintered lenthways. The cap is also brittle, you can see fractures.

    Re: Sulphur Tuft (???)

    I don't think this is a sulphur tuft, the gills are too widely spread, and the stem is green.

    My initial thoughts would be that this is likely to be a kind of Hygrocybe (waxcap).

    Do you have any other images?  Was it found on its own?

    The green suggests a parrot waxcap, Hygrocybe psittacina, which coincidentally I have also found before in a deer park!

    I hope this is useful - please post any more information you have.
