Fungi at Ogden

One of my first this season and rather pretty fungi was seen at Ogden on Thursday on grass. My (wild) guess as to species is Coprinus plicatilis. I trust our local experts will correct me.

Hi Bruce,
I think that there are many different species of Parasola that all look very similar, so I would suggest to get a positive identification you would need to examine it under a microscope,

Many thanks Alison. I suspected this would be the case. There was only the one specimen so left it. It had gone the next day.
