Melanophyllum haematospermum = Red Spored Dapperling

How many of us might see the brown cap of a small fungus and pass by thinking --- just another 'little brown job'?  Not Stephanie with inquisitive mind!  
Found in Penybedd wood ---- bit of wood just over railway bridge leading to Pembrey Country Park.  She found it end of August.
Turn it over and ------ WOW ---- what colour of gills.  Uncommon / rare.  Scattered over GB with a very few records from Wales.

Well spotted as usual Stephanie.
