The Art of Identifying Mushrooms with The least Amount of Information :D
I think my proposed name is right though…

your images are lovely, but the hard data provided is insufficient for a good ID. Next time, IF you are interested in learning a name, you need to collect and photograph the entire mushroom, get a spore print, note habitat, etc. It takes time to get all of this right, and even then, sometimes a photo is insufficient. Still, gotta start somewhere!
Besides, you live in an area that produces a lot of fungal collection jealousy in us poor North Americans with our boring old, same old/same old fungi…so you already have a leg up in the myco-community! ;)

We look forward to seeing your future collections…

Am unable to sample the base as it separated at harvest, still in the ground.

Thanks for your input, I’m trying to learn from other visual examples.
Also learning how to post specimens, put up some others and they only got listed as ‘image #’ (83516) and (83524)
It would be appreciated if you could help me identify these at some stage thanks

possibly in a “pink-spored” group
