    Found these in the grounds of charnwood lodge near the garden area. They have the yellowy orange colouration and are velvety in texture and look rather like dyer's mazegill which is apparently common across the country but you don't have an entry for it.

    Hello there, thanks for sharing.


    These are excellent photographs and I can confirm that this is indeed Phaeolus schweinitzii  -  the Dyers Mazegill.


    Do go ahead and submit this find.


    Best wishes,

    thanks, already have along with the fly agarics and a head sized chicken of the woods that had fallen off an oak on the edge of the big fern patch on the other side of the ridge from the house.
