Average Brown Fungus

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Found, unearthed, underneath our huge Oak tree. I have no idea why it was uprooted. Trees also nearby are Birch and Hazel. Smell not noted.

Can you make a spore print? Gills look pink to me, but they may darken.

Sorry, no, the hot weather has shrivelled it. What are the possibilities?

Broken base not helpful. Gills look white and free; cap margin striate. How's about Amanita fulva?
