Fungi for ID King's Forest February

A rather belated request for id help. Anyone any thoughts on this small, waxy feeling fungi from the King's Forest last February?

Regards

Steve

this small, waxy feeling fungi

Hello Steve, looks like Rhodocollybia butyracea, the dark form, there is also a brown version (asema). I don't know the English name right now, in Dutch it is called Botercollybia (boter= butter, for its waxy surface). In
older books it is given as Collybia butyracea. I hope you know that "fungi" is plural, so your question for one specimen should be: "this ... fungus" (;^)
Good luck, enjoy, Jan van der Brugge

Thanks for your advice. It's called buttercap in English. Yes I am aware that's the plural; unfortunately I find that I forget to turn my brain on more frequently as I get older.
