Aniseed toadstool (Clitocybe odora)

I struggled naming this fungi and initially thought it was deathcap. The colour suggests it is the Aniseed but I am open to suggestions and would be pleased to name it correctly. The stem looks very distinctive.

  1. Looks slimy! Is that a characteristic for identifying fungi?

  2. Hi Plesiosauria,
    Nice to hear from you and thanks for the question.The answer is yes it can be used for the identification similarly with honey fungus which also has a covering of stickyness. I will post a picture of some honey fungus in the very near future. Keep an eye out.
