Trooping Funnel (Monk’s head)
This is a young Clitocybe geotropa (Tricholomataceae), commonly known as the Trooping Funnel, a woodland mushroom with an exceptionally long stipe, often seen in large numbers, either in arcs or even complete fairy rings, sometimes many metres in diameter.
The Trooping Funnel is very common throughout Britain and Ireland and is also found across mainland Europe, and in North America.
In 2003 it was proposed the new genus Infundibulicybe to include several species of Clitocybe, among them was C. geotropa, so this species would be synonym to Infundibulicybe geotropa.
