Pretty sure this is one of the 'helmet' fungi sp. Perhaps a Mycena or perhaps an Insitica sp? Any help is greatly appreciated. Cap 10-20mm diameter on short stem, either singly or in small clusters. Colour is light brown to dull red.
Found growing on a live tree trunk of a Sweet Chestnut about 4 feet from the ground in a mixed woodland of native and exotic tree species.
Looks very like Yellow Helmet (Insitica flavovirens) - was called Mycena multicolorata. These are found on Tree Fern trunks but this spotting was not so maybe another species?
