Remaining somewhat frustrated by my continuing inability to ID the fungi sp. growing on the garden lawn. I will be taking today's record shots along with a single fruit body to Swanwick Lakes nature reserve tomorrow to ask a local "expert" mycologist exactly what they are?

The fungi which reached a peak count of 18 by mid week, continues to defy positiive ID confirmation due to a severe lack of fungi field skills (poss. Galerina mycenopsis). Some individual fruit bodies have reached widths of up to 20mm, but most have remained below 5mm in width - these smaller caps are now shrivelled - although new fruiting bodies are still appearing at the soil surface.
