|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|While visiting with some friends this fungi was found on a slope of their yard. I haven't been able to take many photos this month... surgery and recovery from a rather nasty ruptured appendix. However, I couldn't resist trying to get this shot.|
If anyone can identify this particular fungi, I would be appreciative. Fungi are difficult to identify at the species level... many require a microscope.

I am presently on vacation in Oklahoma, so I don't have a guide book close at hand. You did a fine job of photographing this trio of fungi, but as you already stated, getting the proper ID can be a real challenge.
I like the composition and excellent detail you managed to capture. The DOF is great as you wisley used an f/16 aperture. Very nice image. Hope you get a full recovery from your operation.
Seems like old fruit-bodies of Chlorophyllum brunneum (Farl. & Burt) Vellinga, although, as you said, in most cases proper identification's impossible without microscopic analysation. But the visible macroscopic features (fruiting in nitrophilous fields, even in gardens; flesh color changes to red after breaking; bulbous stem base) correspond.
Best regards, László
