mushroom ID

I'm new to finding wild mushrooms but i love them. I am in France in the Jura and have found these under a fir tree. They look inviting but I can not find a good identification of them by comparing pictures anywhere Does anyone know what they are. I look forward to your help Yours Tony 1

Its looks like an agaricus species ,but in line with other forums we are loathe these days to id in case they are eaten ...reprecussions ,etc......You are in France ,and there are pharmacies or local experts who would be too pleased to id them for you ,maybe even tell you if they are edible.

Don't see any problem with IDing. But of course no one would be daft enough to eat mushrooms on the say of a random internet weirdo.

Tony - get a good book like this, read some of the other posts in this section. Don't eat anything until you are 100% sure.

As Bubble says, they are generally better at such things in France that the UK. I know they do pêche à pied, maybe there are similar events for mushrooms?

I too live in France (lucky old moi). If in doubt take them to the pharmacie.

Do many people actually do that?
