I'll only regard them as nice if I've captured enough to let someone identify it for me.

Photo 3

I notice on the third photo there are white droplets on the gill's (milk),can you remember if the cap was greasy and if there was any smell.

Grease and smell

The cap was perhaps a little greasy, but not very so (although it was rather damp in the plantation).

No smell I can recall - but I was rather full of cold at the time.
