What's this fungus ?

No, it's not a trick question. I struggle with fungi identification and would really like someone to tell me what this is. When I first noticed it I thought the colouring of the cap was the way it grew but on closer inspection it appears to have been grazed by a slug.

It stands about 100 mm tall and is growing on a very old tree stump which is tight against the side of a Larch tree; but it's hard to say if the stump was originally also a Larch.

I don't ever recall seeing a fungus like this and if I ever did it's obviously been lost in the mists of memory.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
