[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi! This is, if I'm not wrong, a young piece of Macrolepiota rhacodes, which is common mushroom in the Hungarian mountains. The main differences between this and the well-known Macrolepiota procera are:
- M. rhacodes is a bit smaller
- the texture of its cap is rougher than the one of M. procera
- M. rhacodes only grows in forest, while M. procera in forest and on field, too
- after breaking the flesh of M. rhacodes turns into bloodred, later to brown, which doesn't happen in the case of M. procera (its flesh remains white after breaking)

Edible, but it used to be said M. procera is more delicious. Mushroom of late September / early October.

Hello Laszlo,
The image shows fine details in the mushroom, and the growing habitat is well documented!
It is a fine composition with good details, attractive colours of autumn!

Hi dear Laszlo ,
Great details too and it has good composition.
As always is nice.


Hello Laszlo,

A different and beautiful mushroom. Nice colours and details. By the way, in my opinion it is not a rhacodes, possibly a different species. The cracking cap is too odd!


I've foud it dear Lazlo. Excting macro and Good sharp and BG. Not like mine.
