These images are for comparison and identification with post 8029 where there is some doubt about whether they are Macrolepiota or clelandii. I hope they help to clarify the doubts and confusion I have about the identification.

Have added a couple of better quality images to this listing. (for Irene, this last lot of images the cap size was about 4.5cm kk
As I suspected, this is a tiny species for a Macrolepiota (but I still think it is). The size fits well on clelandii (up to 80 mm) and other pictures of it also make me think this could be it, but of course I can’t be sure, because I don’t know every species in this genus.
But I know Macrolepiota procera rather well, and can definitely say that the ones in your pictures are not it. The caps often reach a width of 20-25 cm, and the stem has brown girdles.
Sorry Irene, I did read your notes and was slack in not giving you the dimensions. The caps are about 70mm and do not seem to get any bigger than that. The second group of images are not the same specimen but both groups were about the same size in cap width. This seems to put them about midway between the two family sizes and I thought that this might confuse the issue. Whatever you decide I will be content with and should have excepted you earlier ID.
I didn’t ask directly before, but I’ll do it now: Please tell us the width of the cap on this Macrolepiota sp.
