[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my first post on 'Fungi' and i would like to dedicate it to Lou (euroblinkie).

I don't know its ID, but what i know is that, it had grown up like a magic! Few days back, they were not there, and suddenly, this big :)
May be that recent rain in Memphis, had helped them to grow..

I took this photograph yesterday. And today when i saw them, they were not dome-shaped (like in the photograph) anymore, but had flattened.

Wish i could know its ID... anybody, pls?

Hello Ruby,
Brenda may be on the right track with her ID. I admit they do look like Shaggy Parasol mushrooms from the photos im my guide books, but it also says that they are fall mushrooms so that has me stumped a little. It also says they appear in February in Florida, so who knows for sure:) The only way to be absolutely sure is to check spore samples. Great shot!!

hello Ruby
THANKS for this nice picture of this group mushrooms
nice details and lovely naturel colours

i think it is
Macrolepiota rachiodes bohemica grows in grass
also nice to see a new picture in your info from you
thanks greeting lou

Yup these seem to be some sort of a parasol mushroom. Great picture by the way

Hi Ruby,

First of all congratulations for the beautiful photo. Excellent compo, colors and DoF, while the composition's marvellous. As for the ID goes, this is no doubt a Lepiota sensu lato (= in broad sense), most exactly a Macrolepiota or a Chlorophyllum species (there are many). Probably Chlorophyllum brunneum (= Macrolepiota rhacodes var. bohemica) as Lou suggested, but other species from the 2 generas mentioned above are also possible. For example we need to know if the context was redding when bruised or not (color change from white to red), because this is a very important mark in this clade!

I'm afraid your wonderful fungi won't be fully identified, at least not on species level, but the photo itself is extremely aesthetic. Tfs.

Best regards, László
