Thanks.

They had all gone by the time I got around to getting another photo, so they must have been edible.

edible to something can be very different to edible twice to humans

some folk recon shroom toxicity isn't defensive as it is often the diners species that matters rather than what usually eats them .
flies and slugs etc have eaten shrooms a lot longer than humans but it is humans who die from em etc .

i have seen very human unfriendly ones eaten by insects, slugs and a couple of times seen a squizzer drying rather nasty ones for us in a tree

there are a few that nothing critter shaped seems to eat but are ok for people.

overall "well something has been eating them" is not a reliable safety test

ps " someone has cut them with a knife so they must be edible " isnt a reliable safety test either
