I believe this is a Chlorophyllum Molybdites or a False Parasol (poisonous), which is frequently confused with the Macrolepiota Procera or the Parasol Mushroom (Edible).
Check out Mushroom World. ~Vic

Good photo! I would be very afraid to even touch them, as so species can poison you right through your skin.
Yeah…not gonna touch ’em. ☠

Poisonous mushrooms always remind me of the Clint Eastwood film. Can’t remember the name. He was a soldier recuperating in home full of women and got a little too amorous, I think, so they poisoned him 😂
I looked it up…The Beguiled. 1971. I’ve never seen that one. He was a Confederate soldier.
I like Eastwood. He has short patience with bullshit.
Yes, that was it, good film.
Yup, and still turning them out apparently 😁
I know! Right? His latest, The Mule, looks interesting.
It was alright, I didn’t watch it properly, sit in corner writing every night, given TV up 😂 But it was on and sounded okay.
It’s a good thing that you would rather write than watch TV. I’d rather read than watch TV. Most of it is propaganda, including the commercials. 😠
I caught his movie trailer but, I won’t go out of my way to see it. Going to the movies has been ruined and I am not into Netflix or Hulu or Disney+. If it shows up on HBO or Starz, I might see it in the future at some point. Ken is a TV surfer, not me.
Yes, I’ll write until I’m, phew 😥 Then I go and read lol. It’s the journalist’s and presenters that kill all news for me. But most films and TV programs are rehashed from older stuff, I guess I’m just getting too old, there’s only so many stories they can tell
Think it was on Netflix, same here Gillian watches all sorts of stuff, I just zone it out.
I hear ya’! 😁
Fungi are so much more sophisticated than we give them credit for. With plants and fruits, it’s a botany of desire. With fungi it’s more a botany of death.
They can, indeed, be deadly but, the right ones are excellent on pizza or as a burger substitute. Then, there’s the medicinal qualities. I routinely eat Lion’s Mane…tastes like chicken! LOL! I’m not kidding.
Do you harvest them in the woods? I just found a vendor who sells them and a lot of other kinds of mushrooms. Will have to try Lion’s Mane. How do you prepare it??
I don’t, no…though I may snatch a different kind of shroom off of a local tree. It grows Turkey Tail type shrooms and you can tell folks walk by and cut them off when they get to size.
We have a company called Haw River Mushrooms and they make their rounds in Farmers Markets.
Lions Mane looks like a mane of hair. All I do is slice them & pan fry them. They do have a chicken flavor on their own. Lard, salt, butter or any other cooking additive will hide that taste a bit. I love them in a spaghetti sauce I make.
I have taken actual Turkey Tail medicinally. Paul Stamets brand.
Awesome info, Vic. That Stamens guy knows his stuff.
That, he does.
