Day 1 – 15 September 2022

Found on soil in damp grass by rotting logs.

These were found in both their juvenile and mature forms.

The younger forms were a darker orange-beige colour, fading to white at the edge, with many small shreds of white flesh, remnants from the universal veil.

The cream stem had a little fur at the base, and the gills were close and white, getting more lilac-grey near the centre.

The more mature specimens had smooth caps, which were white with grey edges and a dark grey-brown ring around the centre. There was little to no veil flesh on these.
