Help with an Agaricus

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.

Help with an Agaricus

Post by annie »

Hiya all,

I'd appreciate some help with these two fungus examples I found this week. The first was approx 8.5cm across the cap, and the second about 6cm. Found under Scots pine near Boxhill in Surrey, the soil tends to be chalky and alkaline.

They smelt really mushroomy, like field mushrooms.

Thanks in advance,
