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.
Other helpful features are to cut through the stem and cap to see the flesh colour as it should have been whitish with a chrome tinge which becomes more yellow when drying deeper at the base.If you bring a specimen home it should also start to have an apple like or honey smell,also the spore print if you take one should be white,just pop the cap gills down on a dark sheet of paper or a sheet of glass and cover overnight with an airtight container over the cap and when removed the following morning you should have a spore print.
thanks Fenwickfield- did bring home so have put in airtight container etc. cant detect much apple smell. colour of stalk is still quite creamy white but will look again tomorrow. cheers!
