Wild Mushroom Identification - Recommended Books for All Skill Levels:
Every amateur mycologist should have a decent library of books, here are the top five books I highly recommend for wild mushroom identification:
 
1) Edible Mushrooms: A Forager's Guide to the Wild Fungi of Britain and Europe  - The Best, Newest UK mushroom guide - Geoff Dann
3) Mushrooms: A comprehensive guide to mushroom identification  - This one is a proper belter with loads and loads of good technical data - Roger Phillips
4) Complete Mushroom Book: The Quiet Hunt   - A lovely book by a lovely man. Antonio Carluccio
5) Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 - Always a favourite from Hugh's fungi specialist friend, John Wright

It is important to have at least 3 books so you can cross reference and cover as many species as possible

This is a Morel; probably Morchella esculenta. They can appear almost anywhere when the conditions are right; woods, roadsides, gardens, amongst spread bark chippings etc.

Hi Roy and hanks for your help the morel certainly began to have that unmistakable smell after it dried out! re the cup fungus,my wife has simply dug it out we assume its not of harm to nearby soft fruits
