Great Glasshouse NBGW

I 'think' this may be a Dapperling Lepiota cristata but the underside looks very strange to me with stem shape and gills.

  1. Very probably Lepiota cristata, a look at the spores would confirm it as they are a strange boat-like shape, with a prow and a stern. If you want a photo and a measurement of the spores of anything you find, get some spores on a slide, cover it with another slide and post them to me. Put a reference label on them ( Send a few slides in an envelope)and I'll send you the images. My microscopy skills are very, very limited but I can just about measure spores.
