Fungi ID anyone?

This clump has appeared near the roots of the ash tree we had felled three or four years ago. Pretty sure it’s not honey fungus. Any suggestions anyone?



I can take some more pics if it stops raining.

    They look the same as the ones I had last year on a log. I posted and someone IDd them - I think it was someone from Croatia.
    I'll see if I can find the thread - I can't remember the name of them

    Maybe we should start another thread for this year  :)

    I had a look in my French mushroom book, nothing quite the same but this is the nearest, hypholoma fasciculare or "Suphur Tuft".

    I think it's the chlorophana one I had @Busy-Lizzie. It's glossier than that, and @Dovefromabove 's looks shiny too. 
    @Ante30 thought it was brighter than the one you show, and I've just looked again at them. 
    Fascinating how many types there are  :)
     
    Mine were about a month later, but I don't expect that means much.

    @Busy-Lizzie 😊 I looked at Sulphur Tuft but mine don’t have a ring on the stipe which is said to be an ID for that. 

    I’m trying to make some spore prints.

    Afternoon all.
    @Busy-Lizzie, you are correct. This is Sulphur tuft or some other from Hypoloma family. Pretty lovely but poisonous

    @Dovefromabove, you are also right. Honey fungus has small ring around stambh.

    Here is RHS photo of Honey fungus. You can see small rings on photo.

    Does that mean that @Dovefromabove's in the first post are honey fungus? My photo is only an Internet one of the nearest I could find to Dove's. I didn't know that Dove had already posted that same photo on a different fungus thread.

    Hi @Ante30 and thanks ... I had thought Sulphur Tuft but my reading said they also have a ring ... however a check elsewhere said that evidence of the ring disappears pretty quickly so I think you’re absolutely correct. They are a gorgeous sight 😍

    Hurrah - @Ante30 to the rescue!  :)

    I'll need to have a look out for them again this year.
    Are mine and Dove's both poisonous @Ante30?
