Edit for clarity.

Yup, they really are something. I wish I had longer to photograph them, it poured rain everytime I took my camera out on this hunting trip. :(

I had only partially considered M.elegans before Roy suggested it, as the caps were so waterlogged they didn’t really show the velvety texture the species normally exhibits. I think that is what they most likely are though.
