your are making observations with the hope of getting an ID, the base can be an essential character. if your photos only show what’s above ground, an ID may not be possible. try taking one photo of the fungus in situ (as it’s growing in its natural habitat) and another with one or more specimens removed, showing all parts of the fruiting body.

Ok. Even if i find only one specimem?
Why should a mushroom be removed from the ground?
I have been removing a mushroom from the ground, when i see lets say 2 or 3 of the same specimen, then replacing it from where i took it and noticed that it continues to grow as if untouched.
And thanks.

by the way, Nelly, you can (and should) remove at least one specimen from the ground for your photos. the mycelium won’t mind, so long as you cover up the hole your fruiting body is plucked from.
