Further Information

Notes (MWS) A large toadstool with a funnel-shaped cap that grows on soil and decayed mossy logs, fallen trunks etc in woodlands and plantations, often beside paths. It appears during late autumn and winter, and often persists into early spring when it's dull brown colour can be deceptive. It is widespread and common.
Diagnostic features Usually quite easily recognised but over-wintered fruitbodies can be deceptive.

In the field, the "woven-rope" texture of the stipe is distinctive. In the lab, the amyloid reaction of the spore print separates the Goblet from similar-looking Clitocybe spp.
