Re: Sulphur tuft

Re: another mushroom for id

not always easy to id these (for me anyhow)
my best guess on it would be Agaricus silvaticus or Agaricus bisporus, but it could equally be another species too.

Lepista nuda and saeva are much larger and solid looking fungi, and are the ones commonly know as Bluestalks.

Re: a quiz

got them all bar 1 and 3
