could be a wide range of things but whatever it is they are quite interesting to be out in the spring so if you get the chance again have a good look under cap as well as on top and perhaps try breaking a few of the gills to check if they produce milk.

The cap is the right colour for P durus but if you look at the top two fruit-bodies you will see gills;)
