Lepiota i think!

A friend found this and we've been a bit stumped on ID. It looks like a Lepiota and reminds me of Macrolepiota rhacodes var.bohemica which i found onsite about a year ago (i was told that this is now Chlorophylum brunneum however i.e Shaggy parasol) Thank you!


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

One of the main differences

One of the main differences given in Funga Nordica between C rachodes and C brunneum is that the former has a bulbous base and the latter has a distinctly marginate bulbous base ie a little shelf at the top of the bulb. Without getting the microscope warmed up I would go with C rachodes.
