Your pics are a little over-exposed, so its hard to pick out all the details. But I think its Pholiota squarrosa, shaggy pholiota. Inedible, but thats not a problem anyway 'cos it tastes foul.

Do you mind awfully if I move this topic over to the foraging section?

Edit:And welcome to Downsizer!

Thanks for the welcome and a very rapid response!
Sorry about the over-exposure but I used a flash.
I guess I didn't need to
I don't know how to put the message in the "foraging" section.
I have included a couple more pictures that may be better.
Regards

I'm pretty sure that it is the shaggy pholiota. Not edible, but really pretty I think.

Don't worry about shifting this over to foraging, I'll do it later on.

Smile Hi Senior8 & welcome to the foraging section,

I agree with cab - almost definitely an overexposed shaggy pholiota - disgusting and inedible, but good pics, nonetheless. Idea If you find something that looks similar, i.e. in a similar setting, but maybe deader trees/logs & without the shaggy bits & without greeish gills, put some pics on the site - cap, stem & base, and a cut through section - it may be quite edible and tasty la

How does one do this, or do I need a moderator to assist?

Thanks again for a timely response.
It's too bad it is inedible because there were three clumps of them...
Oh well....
