Fungus by an Italian lake 1

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Fungus by an Italian lake 1

Post by Ernesto » Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:33 pm

We came across two fungi on an excursion to Lake Vico in Central Italy (510 masl) in November. I would appreciate any comments on their id and will post one here and the other in a separate message. (I did not take the pictures.)

This one was found in grazed grassland remote from the water's edge.

Many thanks in anticipation.
