Common Bonnet (Mycena galericulata)

The Common Bonnet is very common; indeed, probably one of our most common species. You will find it any just about any broad-leaved woodland on dead wood and, especially stump where it can be extremely prevelant in big tufts with many stems. It can be found all year round but is particularly noticable in the autumn.
It is edible but as the individual specimens are quite small they are really not worth the effort to collect.
