Future observations

If you can take a close up of the gill,stem and cap as it help's enormously when trying to identify them for you,also if they smell,slimy,dry cap.

Thanks for your help with the identifications. I headed out into the forest yesterday with the intention of photographing 'a few' mushrooms for a daily photography project of mine, and ended up finding maybe 25+ species.

I'll try to make better notes on each species I find in the future, smell might be an issue as my sense of smell is terrible due to working with various chemicals!

I think you might find it has

I think you might find it has pores rather than gills but as Fenwickfield says it is still important to show this detail.
BTW the one top right is Amanita fulva.

Extra photo

I've not figured out how to add more than 1 image to an observation, but this link is to a close up of a small cluster of the above:

All you do is click on the edit to add more pictures .As Flaxton said some have pores,but you have put habitat down which is important,I carry a little notebook and pencil as once you start you end up with loads of pictures,I managed 23 the other day.
