Unidentified Specimens

Picture Type: Top of cap
Notes
Month: August
Time: Late afternoon
Diameter: 7cm
Height: 15cm
Terrain: Pinewoods
Substrate: Soil/Pine Needles
Comments:
This is some sort of parasol, not sure whether Macrolepiota or Lepiota as I haven't been able to identify it. There was no reddening when cut. There is a picture of an immature specimen which had an almost granular cap surface.

Picture Type: Side view

Picture Type: Cap close-up

Picture Type: Gills and ring

Picture Type: Base of stipe

Picture Type: Side view

This is the immature specimen before the cap spread causing a breakup of the surface which produces the familiar scales of parasols.
