Another relatively small sized (the cap is 2-5 cm across) mushroom beauty (edible one) which I came across on a dead wood of Epping Forest (Essex) in dense clusters. Thanks to helpings of my dear bro Laszlo Kaposvari (Hormon_Manyer) I found the id of this beauty. So thanks once more my bareatom!

Psathyrella piluliformis (=P. hydrophila) (Common Stump Brittlestem, Two-toned Crumble Cap) is a common species whose principal fieldmarks are fragile texture, smooth, hygrophanous, usually convex cap that is dark red brown drying tan, white or pallid stem, growth in large clumps on decaying hardwood, and dark brown spores. You can reach more detailed info on the genus (that the name means "strawlike, fragile") and species clicking on this this link. I also attached a WS of another cluster of the same species from the same location.

I would like dedicate these postings to another great nature photographer friend on TN, Laurens LINDE (euroblinkie ) who is also one another the best experienced photographer on fungi that I am learning so much from his masterpiece presentations. Hope you can like this MF Lou!

PLEASE DO NOT GIVE POINTS THIS IMAGE! since it is a present!

TFL and Cheers,
