Observations indicated the creamy-white and brownish-cream mushrooms with decurrent gills on the upper and middle slopes of Mill Hill photographed each side and below were one and the same species. I have identified this species (wrongly) as the Snowy Wax Cap, Cuphophyllus niveus, (or it could be the Pale Wax Cap, Hygrocybe pratensis var pallida) but this choice has not been confirmed. The scientific name of this species has frequently changed. The correct names need to be checked.

This species has now been confirmed as the Pale Wax Cap, Hygrocybe berkeleyi, (known on the British Mycological List as Hygrocybe pratensis var pallida).
is the small Lancing Clump meadow mushroom
with a concave cap that was about 35 mm in diameter. Its identity has not
been researched yet.
possibility is the Cuphophyllus pratensis (=Hygrocybe).
This is the Meadow Wax Cap.
two small mushrooms in the photographs above only reached 30 mm in cap
diameter and most of the small clump, on the footpath approach to Mill
Hill from the Waterworks Road, were
about 20 mm. They have not been identified.
The spore print of this mushroom turned out to be white.
With the latest photographs this species has now been identified as probably being a Dermoloma, if blackening, Dermoloma magicum.
