Lacrymaria lacrymabunda (=L.velutina)
Broadly convex, yellow-reddish cap surface radially streaked with yellow and brown tinges. Gills black with spores, with pale edges. Stem is 5 to 10cm tall; with a ring zone of pale fibres stained black by falling spores. Grows in clusters.
Border of lawn/meadow and the tree line in our town park.
If my identification is correct, this mushroom is edible when young, needs to be cooked quickly after harvest, and is of medium quality.
