You have to give us better photos in sharp focus. Take a photo of the gills. Take the time to establish a location. It will help.

This observation is nagging me.

I can’t see the colors well enough.

The gills speak Coprinoid language, and the habitat and annulus speak almost but not quite of Leucocoprinus birnbaumii. It lacks, apparently, the yellow color that this species is known for, but could it be unique to this collection?

If possible, try to rephotograph and update with a few pics. I like using the flash for some scenarios.

I’d say wood

one of the FBs mid-way down the frame is coming straight out of the wood.

a beautiful agaric with a somewhat perplexing combination of features. any more photos? any better location than Earth? somewhere tropical would be my guess.

Is that growing out of wood, or out of caulk / mortar?
