Found yesterday in my garden - I pulled it up with a grass clump on lawn edge. Unfortunately didn't notice it first so didn't get all of stipe.
It has the right smell - mealy,wet flour , right gill spacing , right time of year for Calocybe gambosa (St. Georges mushroom) but it's small and not chunky.
However I can't think what else it could be.
This morning's spore print is white .

Found these boletes on a patch of grass on the corner of Maudlin Road and Magdalene Close .
Nearby trees are Sycamore,Hazel and Lime.
A few together rather than single ones (although photo shows one on its own)
Fresher one quite red others faded to pink ,stains blue , fibrous stipe .
I 'm thinking Hortiboletus rubellus but not sure.
Comments appreciated.

Had a search through some maggoty stipes for orange grains (as described by Laessoe and Petersen) and I think I found some which confirms H. rubellus (I think!)

Here's one that I didn't want to see.
Broad Bean Rust -Uromyces viciae fabae var. viciae fabae (so bad they named it twice).
It hit my spring sown Broad Beans but not the Aquadulce I sowed in the autumn.
Harvested them now and pulled up the plants for the compost bin. Beans inside pods OK but probably slightly lower yield.

A couple of Ganoderma ,one on an old stump on the grass at the top of Kingsbridge Hill and one on a Hazel stump just as you turn in to Fishchowter Lane.
Could be applanatum or australe . Sadly no Yellow Flatfooted Fly galls on it apparently they're fussy and only lay eggs in applanatum.
I need to look at the spores which are a reddish brown colour as can be seen on the ivy leaves.
Also woodlice are having a part on one of the brackets.
I didn't have a box with me so didn't bring home one of the other nearby fungi (see photo) went back this morning and they had been mown away.
suggestions welcome.

Boletes coming out of a stone wall today
The wall on the left as you start to walk up Kingsbridge Hill from Maudlin Road
The in situ photos aren't very good as I was bending down with the dog on a lead and traffic rushing past.
I presume the soil is a lot higher on the inside of the wall. Also I should have noted the trees but forgot (tomorrow)
I'll try and identify it later.

An Agaricus today in soil in a hedgebank next to an old stone wall in Fishchowter Lane.
I'm not sure about species- possibly impudicus but I'm not sure.
No ring on old specimen , no yellow staining possibly slight smell of phenol (but might be my imagination)
Clublike base to stipe
spores brown, gills free ,old FB 6cm in diameter.
I didn't have my knife with me (bad mistake) so couldn't dig out stipe base.
