Hi PeterCongrats on your first post - you passed with flying colours. Jan suggested Lepiota cristata, the Stinking Dapperling, named because of its smell of coal gas. Nice to have a photographic record for the Glasshouse because on our visit on Tuesday the mushroom had been disappeared through garden maintenance.
Greetings, it could be a Lepiota. L cristata is common in Pembrey forest under conifer - with brown-orange scales on cap. There is a Lepiota from glasshouses with blackish 'flakes' at centre of the cap which I have seen in both the Great Glasshouse and Tropical house as well as at Aberglasney in their 'Ninfarium'. Must look up the name. I think those in photo may have lost some of their colour so are not 'typical'.
