Walking on Cissbury Ring in the mist and rain it was a pleasure to see these beautiful Parasols.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Look's rather dramatic against the dark sky very nice photo and good specimen
Just reminding myself why I like studying mushrooms and also posting something easy to ID. This was such a lovely specimen too.
Thanks for your comments.

There are parasols and shaggy parasols. Parasols have snakeskin stems like in your picture. Shaggy Parasols have smooth stems and can make some people unwell if eaten.
Thank you for the warning! It does seem strange that something as shaggy as this specimen is not a shaggy parasol.
