Well, after all I was wrong doubting my first intuition. "Cosas veredes, Sancho!"
Thank you very much to all for your help and comments.

Oh, dear friends.
I must apologize for being out so long without uploading any picture. And after so long I would have preferred to post for you a nicer one but, stubborn as I am, I persisted on classifying my last photographed specimens and...
today I must confess that I give up. I have tried, but I give up.
I couldn't find the id of these damned fungi so I have no other than to pass the task to my beloved TN mycologist friends. Pleeeeease!
At first I thought they could be Agrocybe praecox, but now I doubt it much.
This is for you, László, Felipe, J.Ramón... Can you help me? Please?
Another pair of pics on the ws for your help.

Thank you!!

Hola Maite,
no abandones el mundillo de los insectos, :))
yo no tengo ni ID-ea. no controlo el mundillo de los fungis,
pero es bonito el trabajo que presentas,
con detalles para una correcta ID.
saludos amiga y gracias por tus amables comentarios.

Hola Maite,
Como esta usted!
delighted to see your beautiful posting after a while!
beautiful composition with 2 in 1 in good sharpness, natural colour and details
I think the fungi expert will be able to help you out with ID!
muchas gracias

Hi Maite,
You have been away from TN for quite some time and it is a pleasure to find you back with the picturte of these mushrooms.
I have a poor knowledge of these things, but I am confident someone will certainly solve your ID problem.
The two images combined together give a clear impression of the shape and colour of this fungus. I like the formation on the underside of the hat.
Thanks for sharing and looking forward to more images from you.

Hi, dear Maite.
Many thanks for sharing new charming picture from you. It is wonderful as usual. So attractive low POV, fine scenes (I like the decoration of the main subject by cute fresh leaves). I also like delicate lighting and rich pleasant colour palette of the shots, excellent composition of every of them and nice combination into collage. Mt hearty wishes and compliments.

Hi Maite,i'm not a fungi expert and i'm surprising to see that in June,very interestings pics,we can see all the faces of this beauties,thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano

Hola Maite,
Bonita e ilustrativa foto en la que se ven los detalles con excelente nitidez, además en su propio hábitat como a mí me gustan, quizás sólo le hubiese quitado algunos hierbajos que aparecen en primer plano. Cuantos más datos se aporten y se vean en la imagen, mas facilitaría la ID., sería interesante saber, si tiene algún olor determinado, si la carne es dulce o amarga, sí el pié es hueco o lleno etc.. Por la fecha en que fue hecha la foto y la información visual podría tratarse del Agrocybe praecox aunque tampoco descarto algún Hebeloma primaveral que junto a las Pholiotas son géneros muy próximos. Un cordial saludo
José Ramón

Hi Maite, i must confess i haven't a clue my friend...if it were a geographcal question, i might have a chance in helping!
I do think it is a lovely presentation you have shared with us though, two excellent POV's to show us clearly this unknown fungi in a great setting.
Good luck with the I.D :o)

Potrebbe essere Agrocybe elatella, ma non sono un esperto e i riconoscimenti in fotografia sono sempre difficili. Molto bella la presentazione, ottimo POV e accurata documentazione (anche in WS), buona nitidezza, belli e naturali i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Maite
Unable to ID the fungi as well but with a nice clear presentation and sharp detail of the mushroom some one should be be able to help you out

Hola Maite.
Debe haber mucha humedad por esos lugares en donde lograste las imagenes, que son por cierto bellas, sin embargo no tengo ni la menor idea de que son. Aqui en las regiones de semi desierto los unicos hongos que tenemos vienen en latas, y se compran en el super.
Saludos Maite.

Hello Maite,
Nice to see you back again! If no-one else comes up with the ID I will try to browse our books on Fungi but time is scarce at the moment! Anyway this is a very fine illustration together with your workshop pics so it should be possible. I like the different angles you're showing and details are very sharp. ice natural colours too and a fine presentation!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla


Great picture. Just briefly marking today.

Hi Maite,
So nice to see you back after such a long time. Hope everything is fine. This is a wonderful pair of images of these mushrooms in great shape and size. Very neat and sharp image with nice colours. I like the portrayal of the habitat too. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Maite,

Agrocybe praecox, without any doubt, José Ramon is right.
Nice shots, otherwise. First thoughts are often true. Why don't You trust Yourself? :)
All the best, buenos noches, László

PS: A. praecox is a very variable specie in color and size, which is sometimes difficult to identify, but Your photo shows quite typical specimens.

Hello Maite,
Mushrooms are delicacy to watch too. Excellent composition & compound framing. TFS. :)

Hello Maite

Yes fungi are hard to ID.
But you have provided an excellent image.I am confident that you will be able to.
Well focused with very good detail.
The colours appear natural.
Very good pov.


Bonjour Maite
Excellent travail de composition.Tu nous envoies un bel assortiments de champignons
Jolies couleurs et finesse du détail et très belle présentation.
Merci et au revoir...JP

I just call them all mushrooms haha. I think it is nicely composed, and it is a nice view of nature, so that is fine.
Nice to see you.

Hello Maite,

Beautiful capture.Lighting,composition and sharpness are excellent.I liked very much.

Hi Maite

I always have to look my mushrooms up on Roger's Mushrooms website as I am no expert either. Nice set of shots showing different views for us. Nicely composed shots with good POVs



Dear Maite,
Agrocybe praecox - as far as my book tells me, but don't trust me, I am not an expert with fungi, and I never eat anything but maybe six species that I definitely know and can clearly tell from others that I don't know. Nice to see your posting - hope you are fine and doing well!
With thanks, and all my best wishes,

Hola Maite, great couple of photo with great colors and splendid sharpness, I don't know id, Sorry, very well done, ciao Silvio

Buenas Maite,
Hacía tiempo que no visitaba a las galerías amigas, y que tal va todo y esa Nikon echa chispassssssssss.
Yo no puedo identificarte a este hongo, buen trabajo logrado para dar muestras de esa identificacion
Saludos y buenas vacaciones que están a la vuelta de la esquina

Hello Maite. I was having hard times myself identifying some of my mushroom post. Maybe someone here will be able to help.
I like the sharp capture with the gills in good focus. Pleasing perspective of this double shot composition. Well done and thanks for sharing. Regards. Jusni

Hola Maite,
Tanto tiempo!
Pero según veo en tus notas, no sólo he sido yo el que se ha perdido de por acá :)
Pues aparte de admirar y disfrutar tu composición, no puedo aportar mayores luces sobre la identificación del hongo, aunque supongo que ya a estas alturas los expertos amigos de TN lo deben haber hecho.
Muy buenos los dos puntos de vista que nos regalas, para podernos hacer una mejor idea de como luce el hongo.
Espero que nos encontremos de nuevo pro aquí con mayor frecuencia.
Un gran abrazo,

Hola Maite.
De setas nanai.
Dando una vuelta por aquí y viendo algunas fotillas...

Hello Maite,
A fine capture of a mushroom taken in the spring and presented from two POV's in tow well composed sharp images.
The fact that this was taken in the spring could mean that it could be A. praecox ('praecox' means early).
Well done and thanks for sharing this fine duo-image, even if I'm late in giving you this critique for it.
Best wishes,

Hi Maite,
a very sharp shots of these fungi in their original surrounding. The white colour is well balaced abd it is seen and the gills are well seen too in gret details.
The incusin of the green leaves amke the shot well contrasted with colours and tones.
