appears to have radial grooves. Would place it among G. drummondii, G. mbilicatum or G. campestre; at least in the U.S. I do not see a noticeable granular spore case, as in G. dummondii; nor the roughened spore case and occasional short pedicel of G. campestre. I’d suggest G. umbilicatum a close fit.
