Description:

Group of whitish mushrooms growing by the path in a wooded area of the park. Convex to flat caps and sturdy stems. Caps to 8 cm across, light grey shading to greyish brown at centres, white flesh, inrolled margins, white/cream decurrent gills, off-white stem 5 cm long, 1.5 cm diameter with slightly darker spiral longitudinal fibres and a clump white roots. Spore print didn't come out. Specimen dried out and a week later smelt (to me) of urine, though I didn't notice any special smell when it was fresh and maybe it was starting to decay!
