Only before you start any image correction, make sure the image is vertical. If stipe is the central element, rotate it unit it is plumb or nearly so. Then trim (crop) so that only the mushroom is in the picture. You don’t need all that background for the ID. I like to crop close, so that it is more readable to the masses who scan the pictures, looking for something good. Some will like to keep more background. Then begin the adjustments. Since unwanted portions of the photo are gone, they will work better.

and enhancing mid-range contrast to compensate for the flash might show more detail.
