Bolbitius titubans – Egg-yolk Fieldcap

In fertilised grass or lawns, mainly in urban areas. Small, bright yellow, slimy buttons identify young specimens. With age, the colour fades to buff or off-white; as the cap flattens, the marginal grooves become apparent. The pale yellow gills turn brown with mature spores. This fragile species breaks easily.
