This pair of medium-sized agarics emerged earlier this week. Just the two and I hadn't seen them before. About 8-10cms diameter. The photo of the underside gives it a pink tinge but when I actually broke one the gills were white - flesh classically mushroom brittle - like field mushrooms - i.e. not rubbery, and the flesh itself was chalky white. In well-lit grass at the edge of mature oak, chestnut and scots pine. Any ideas?


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

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

That might be a young faulse chanterelle growing in the background?

Yes it is

There's quite a big patch of them where I'm standing to take the first of these pictures.
