A Fungus Year
Identifying fungi is a nightmare, so this post comes with a health warning, something along the lines of, "While every attempt has been made to provide an accurate identification, extreme caution should be exercised...." etc. That said, we think this is the orange peel fungus, Aleuria aurantia, which is described as not very common in the UK.
here, which shows pictures of 25 different waxcaps, is very well laid out but.... sorry, leaves me lost - but not as lost as on this site, which has hundreds of pictures of fungi, illustrating what a hugely successful group they are.
