Sulphur tuft mushrooms

Hypholoma fasciculare

Description:

The hemispherical cap can reach 6 cm (2⅓ in) diameter. It is smooth and sulphur yellow with an orange-brown centre and whitish margin. The crowded gills are initially yellow but darken to a distinctive green colour as the blackish spores develop on the yellow flesh. It has a purple brown spore print. The stipe is up to 10 cm (4 in) tall and 1 cm (⅓ in) wide, light yellow, orange-brown below, often with an indistinct ring zone coloured dark by the spores. The taste is very bitter, though not bitter when cooked, but still poisonous.

Habitat:

Woods. Growing in the bark of a dead tree.

Hi CorduneanuVlad, thanks for the ID. By the way, I have another spotting that now when I look at Wikipedia for sulphur tuft i am no longer sure I placed the proper ID. Can you take a look?
