There are other very similar species in this genus which means that detailed examination of an actual specimen is generally needed to identify the exact species. A red box around the image indicates that we think it is likely to be this species but can't be 100% certain.
It occurs in many different habitats from leaf litter to trees and shrubs.
May to November.
It can be considered a pioneer species which will quickly colonise new habitats and take advantage of disturbed ground.
