|Young specimen||Mature Specimen|
Bolbitius vitellinus, Yellow Cow-pat Toadstool.Quite common, in fields and pastures, where it lives on or near horse or cattle dung, as its name suggests. It has a small fruiting body, up to c. 5cm high, with a shiny yellow cap and white gills. It is classed as inedible, thus not poisonous, but hardly worth eating, as it would shrink to nothing in the pan.
