Red gilled fungi like a button mushroom when they first appear about 1 inch across growing into a flat mushroom about 3-4inches across. They have a matt, not shiney surface and grow in groups in my lawn. My garden has damp peaty soil, very much like the soil in the New Forest and grows New Forest type plants very well.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
