I've seen these mushrooms in a small and light forest of spruces. Thanks to a fungi expert, who helped to identify it, I assume they are a Field Parasols (Macrolepiota rhacodes var. bohemica)

I am not sure if I like the POV I might have removed the older fruiting body. I fell the species is more likley a Lepiota. It should have white gills were Agaricus have pink to dark brown.

I Roland,

I can help you about ID. Your species is Macrolepiota rhacodes var. bohemica (Wichanský 1961) Bellů & Lanzoni 1987 with smooth stipe and marginate stipe base.


Hi Roland,
By my opinion a good photo, no need to remove the older body. This is how we meet the fungi in the forest. Let me add it to my theme: "Shaggy Parasol and other Macrolepiotas". Tfs, regards, László
