Sulphur tufts (Hypholoma fasciculare)

One of the pretty little groups of sulphur tufts that I found earlier this week, to go with the submission from a while ago that I finally got round to answering. 🙂

Spindleshank mushroom (Gymnopus fusipes)

These beautiful mushrooms are easily recognised by their distinctively shaped stem. Named for spindles, the stem tapers inwards significantly at the base, especially when growing in tufts rather than singularly. Higher up, the wide stem may be grooved, lined, bulbous and split, as seen in the bottom left photo. Their gills are also notably widely spaced, leading to a squat, toadstool like appearance that is quite endearing.
