It doesn’t seem to have the split in the top like mine. Its very pronounced and is on all of them, a group of about 5 or 6. It is white underneath with a smooth stalk.

Wouldn’t dream of it, i don’t even touch them with bare hands. I once had an issue with my art teacher who said bring fungi in to draw and paint. He admitted he hadn’t thought about toxicity, i just like to photograph them in situ. Beautiful things

Very sensible attitude I reckon Sue. I even distrust mushrooms after a very bad experience as a child. These things stay with you!

I trust the ones from Tesco, but no others. I don't get them too often now, since i don't think they have much taste at all. I remember when bacon egg and mushrooms was a really tasty dish, but not now. Have I changed or have the mushrooms? :smile:

You need to look at the gills underneath the cap as well to identify toadstools. We're seeing unusual toadstools here this year and lots of fungi in general. It's been a great autumn for them, wet and mild!

In this case i knocked one over with my foot. They are white underneath with a straight stem, no ring , whatever it is called around the middle of it. I have decided it is some sort of Funnel fungus but which one I do not know. It does not match any of the images I have found. I wish I had paid more attention to my mycology lectures when at University :laugh5: An ex work colleague of mine is married to another mycology lecturer at the university, but I have been unable to contact her. She doesn’t go online very often. My french neighbour does not know it either.

Yes a very good autumn for fungi our garden and field are full of huge unusual ones

They are amazing things. One thing that fascinated me is the way some trees seem to act as hosts, I am told they build a symbiotic relationship. There's a Holly Oak up at Letcliffe that does this.
