    This little beauty nearly escaped my attention as it was in a crevice of an old Hornbeam tree in my local woods. I'm hoping I got enough for an ID.

    Well you have a two-fer :-) - Two different fungi here ... unfortunately the action of the second (white fuzz) has distorted the original appearance of the first, so hard to say. Lateral stipe suggests perhaps it was paxilloid.

    @Frog thankyou J. It was hard to get a photo of the rear one due to its position. I will tag the front one as paxilloid.
    So much to see in woodlands atm, very damp and quite warm for this time of the year. 18°C yesterday !!!
