Hi Emma, It is really not that big, I photograph with a macro lens then crop the shot further. I believe it was about 6cm, forgot the ruler. I am still new the the Observer so will give the best information I can. The stipe was an off white getting darker and the stem was a bit larger going into the ground.The cap was on the clammy side to the touch, and I believe this was getting older.

Looks too large to be C. collinitus

What color is the stipe? Is it viscid? Is there a bulb at the end of the stipe?
