it doesn't look like an actual mushroom/toadstool, from this picture i would say, this could be a plasmodial slime mold / fruitings body from, Tubifera ferruginosa (raspberry slime mold) ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&cp... ). No longer belonging to the "kingdom" "fungi", they are "Amoebozoas" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slime_mold ) , ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tubifera ) , nice to see the next time maybe if possible 2-3 more pictures. Nice spot, i sit to wait for them to appear again.
