A small group of beautiful mushrooms growing in wood chips among thistles in a recently created bed.
Cap pleated light-grey almost transparent with white veil remains, upturned towards margin, about 2.5 cm across.
Gills light grey with darker edges.
White stem about 5 cm long, a few mm diameter.
Given the veil remains and the wood chip substrate, I’m plumping for C lagopus, though I’m not at all sure and I would appreciate confirmation or an alternative ID.

seems doubtful, at least from where I stand. The one time I scoped something from this group, it matched C. scobicola which can be seen in obs – 105561. You could probably safely call this C. lagopus group.
Thanks for the link – I’ve bookmarked it. Unfortunately I didn’t get this mushroom under the microscope so can’t get very far with the key. At least I’ll know what to look for next time. Any chance of an ID based on macro features?
