Sorry about the fuzzy picture, but when I saw obs 54442, it looked like the same beautiful yellow mushroom, and I wanted to add this too. I don’t remember the date exactly.
This was growing indoors, in a flower-pot, and brought by someone to an exhibition. Lepiota xanthophylla was the closest name I could find then.
I wish I knew what kind of plant it was in that pot..

I have suspected that there could be some look-alikes!

Our intention back then was to send it to a herbarium, but it must have got lost somewhere, so it’s not possible to check any details anymore.

Else is co author of this species which is good enough for me.

The European yellow flowerpot Lepiota (Lepiota in the strict sense) is different than the species found in the wild, called L. xanthophylla.
I cannot see the specimens and the colours very well, but judging from the habitat, it is probably Lepiota elaiophylla. A short description is in Flora agaricina neerlandica 5.

Yeah, I noticed
