Numerous mushroom like fungi were growing in a paddock where the grass has not been grazed recently and was getting quite long. They start off quite orange in colour, fade to be more yellow when mature and then gradually go black. The cap typically 7-8 cm across, the gills on the underside essentially white but fringed black.
