I’ve seen some Amanita with fairly smooth bottoms to the base, and some very young Corts with membranous veils that look similar, I’m not sure how free those gills are… Although that one is a stretch… but sometimes I stretch…
Amanita – no stockings? Cortinarius – free gills?
I ruled out C. molybdites in UK, but I think it’s spreading in Europe too now..
With out any hint of the spore color, these could also be Amanita, or Cortinarius?
One thing though, is that Chlorophyllum rhacodes does stain an orange-brown when cut, and has a hollow stipe (if I remember correctly…). (But I think of it having a more spherical cap as a button…)
caps were still closed couldn’t get spores, thrown them away (maggot ridden.
Chlorophyllum rhacodes or molybdites maybe? or Leucoagaricus? or Agaricus?
What’s the spore colour?
Anybody have clue for these?
