im 99% sure that is what it is but im always open to a second(3rd 4th etc)opinion as that is a good way to stay alive

I'd say that looks very like the one that I identified as the same, but it gave me an interesting intestinal tract for a day or two.

it hasnt gone pink or yellow but the edges are a bit brown and shriveled .

i think i might give this one a miss

it does look and smell rather nice but im old and cautious

the spore print was a forlorn hope ,12 hrs no spores .

i recon it was too immature to drop spores even under a mug in a warm room .

Looks very much like Agaricus impudicus ....seems to be pretty common this year ...

the look is very similar re the cap but the stem of my one was quite thick.the location data fits with mine .

my one had a pleasant shroomy smell when fresh

the impudicus a possible candidate ,i will see if i can get a full grown one for a spore print

i assume the smell/taste in the online descriptions as a bit strong etc is about raw and that they are considered edible in italy might be related to the "nice in sauce" rather than "good in salads" principle
