Velvet Shank?

Guys, is this Velvert Shank? I've never found it before.
bingo

Sorry Velvet.

Can't really see the stem in enough detail but no, I don't think so. You're looking for a stem thats dark on at the bottom and velvety.

O.K. Thanks Cab.

I agree with cab. Also the cap doesn't look "sticky"... Sulphur tuft? Did you get a spore print?
bingo

Maybe "Brick Caps". What do you think guys?
cab

Hard to say without a good look at the gills, but brick cap would certainly be my first guess. Doesn't look like a sulfur tuft, neither yellow enough or dark enough under the gills.
bingo

Defo. not sulphur. I can't eat it anyway, there where loads. Had a good pick today, still lots of Winter Chanterelle and hedgehogs about.

Nice. I haven't found a hedgehog shroom for years Sad

I really want to find some shanks to see me through the winter.

There must be some around here, its the New Forest for f**cks sake. I must be looking in the wrong places. Sometimes I need to open my mind a bit. I've got my spots, there bloody good, I always know I will find things there. What I need is to go on a hunt for new spots again and new mushrooms.
