Panaeolus foenisecii

fungarium:

Agaricus species, most likely Agaricus campestris.

Note the fibrous cap, light pink young gills and large, pendulous ring. 

Cap appearance is not entirely consistent with A.campestris, nor is the short, stout stem and obvious ring. 

No yellow colour change on bruising, as would be expected from A.arvensis or A.xanthodermus. Some pink bruising around insect boreholes.

Found growing under hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) near grass.

Agrocybe praecox

Collected 12/05/14, this medium sized Agrocybe is common on soil in grassy areas such as parks, fields and gardens. Also known as the spring fieldcap, this fungus usually fruits in small tufts or trooping groups. 

The cap is yellow, smooth or slightly cracked, and convex to flat, The gills are narrowly attached to the stem, white but turning purple brown over time- the spore print is brown. The stem is lighter coloured and slender, with a fragile white ring and mycelial cords at the base. 

Recent studies suggest that Agrocybe praecox is part of a cluster of four or more very similar species.
