Found by David Wong. Only one in the patch.
Kindly confirm if ID is correct please. Thank you.
Hi David - assuming these were growing on wood, yes they do look like Hypholoma capnoides. The gill shot shows a faint yellow cast but that could be reflection, not sure.
I mention that because the very similar looking Hypholoma fasciculare has a sulfur yellow tone to it ... more clearly seen in person than photo sometimes.
FYI - Also, a tiny taste (and spit out) between the two species reveals mild taste for the former and intensely bitter for the latter. Which assumes the ability to taste bitter which a percentage of the population does not.
Haha, count me out !
It seems my taste buds are deteriorating with age.
When all around the dining table say it's OK, I still need add a bit of salt.
<grin> Yup, tasting mushrooms is not something everyone is keen on ... but I do have to say it is one of the identification tools for some species.
...um ... at least of mushrooms ... I don't think we identify (ornithological point of view) any bird species by taste for example :-)
We eat them and taste the whole of the birds. except the bone & feathers.
