Trooping Funnel - Clitocybe geotropa
The central umbo and smooth felt-like surface and the very long stem of this mushroom are distinguishing features.
This is a woodland fungus and it is often seen in large numbers, either in arcs or even complete fairy rings, sometimes many metres in diameter.
The Trooping Funnel is one of the few large mushrooms that can survive mild frosts, and so specimens are sometimes seen standing right through to late December.
Widespread and fairly frequent in Britain.
Status in Leicestershire and Rutland not known.
