Hello friends in TN,

I spotted this mushroom as I was walking to my office this morning. The rainy season must have sprout many new growth. This might be Leucoagarius leucothites by the look of gills and shape. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni,
A nice photo of these little mushrooms that resemble some presently growing in my own backyard. I have learned that for some species it is very challenging to properly ID correctly, so I will let that up to the experts on this site. With all the whitish parts it is very difficuly to get the exposure perfect, but you managed quite well here. I like the low POV and vertical composition. Well done!!

Hello friend Jusni,
this one is a lovely view. I know how difficult it is to adjust to the white. So difficult to have a nice balance.
I like seeing the gills and its tough trunk.
Nice sharpness and clarity.


Hi Jusni,
A little noisy, but otherwise a good shot. Great focus and exposure. Probably your ID specification's good, but in case of lepiotoid fungi, like this (generas like Lepiota, Macrolepiota, Chlorophyllum, Leucoagaricus etc.) it's very difficult, mostly impossible to give proper ID without microscope. So, I'm sorry if my words don't mean real help now, I can only say your "models" may belong to Leucoagaricus genera. Let me add your pic to my theme.
Friendly regards, László
