Gymnopus finally unlocked

Last thing before I went yomping around hills looking for bryophytes I finally managed (I hope) to resolve the identity of a fungus I picked up while moth trapping last week - Gymnopilus dryophilus/Collybia dryophila - Russet Toughshank. I hope anyway. I will put it out for consultation to see if this ID flies or gets shot down. Still lots to learn about fungus ID. (edit: thumbs up! phew)
