Egghead Mottlegill

 This was growing in downland pasture back in October and is a member of the Panaeolus or Mottlegill family. It is Egghead Mottlegill, Panaeolus semiovatus and not the magic mushroom. The latter is not totally dissimilar but has a very obvious nipple at the crown of the cap. This one is common and grows on dung. It is not edible.
