Found in soil around dead leaves. With a smooth, central, clavate-shaped stipe which was 8.85cm in length and approx 1cm wide. It had a white, smooth, convex pileus about 39cm in diameter margin to margin. The gills were beige and free(not adnate). There was a “sheathing”-type volva, and an annulus was also present.

that eliminates detail, is to shade the mushroom somehow. Also you needed to block the way the sun through the leaves of the tree produced glare spots just along the surface of the cap. Sometimes it is necessary to dig up the mushroom and move it in order to get a good picture. I’ve written comments on MO previously about taking pictures in open shade and using reflectors to reduce or eliminate shadow…while still using natural light. Some modification of this process might work for you. I think that MO now allows you to search for content in comments. I hope you can find these comments.
