Cap characters

I’m swayed towards Lepiota now. If it were Leucocoprinus, I think the cap margin would be more distinctively striate, and Leucocoprinus caepastipes doesn’t have the golden scurfs at the edge.

The shape and color of the umbo, as well as the apparent fragility and overall whiteness still remind me of Leucocoprinus, though. Hmmm…

I agree on Lepiota

Would have guessed L. clypeolaria or something close to it…

These have to be a Lepiota type don’t they?

These have to be a Lepiota don’t they? I can’t tell if the gills are free though…
