The Parasol, Macrolepiota procera.

The Parasol, Macrolepiota procera. 

White/off white/cream, often very slightly mottled grey to brown with a kind of snakeskin effect. Coming from a bulb a little like the amanitas, strong and up to 30 cm almost always with the skirt still on nearly 2/3 of the way up the stem. Hollow on cutting and often very fibrous.

Two good specimens of shaggy inkcap, Amelia. I went photographing mushrooms last week, and got pics of agaricus and red-cracked bolete. All the best, Joe

Great find.
But I think they are young Parasol Mushrooms rather than Shaggy Ink caps.

I wasn't absolutely sure what these fungi were, Dave, partly because of the markings on the stalks. I have been to the same spot today, and am going to check the downloads.

Have done some research online and now totally agree with you, so I have changed the title. The research on the stem, which I have now included in the description, was the final definitive characteristic.
