Hi there,

I found these today, I know it's not really the season for it, but I'm interested to see if anyone knows what they are.


* Habitat - Found in pasture in cow dung. I'm near Raglan on the west coast of nz.

* Characteristics of the gills - colour is very light cream/almost white. Attached.

* Characteristics of the stem - the stem is solid, 3-4 cm long, 3mm thick.

* Characteristics of the cap - 3-4cm in diameter. Golden brown in colour. Slightly spongy and rubbery in texture. Kinda feels like a portabello, but slightly more moist.

* Color that the mushroom bruises - bruises clear

* Scent of the mushroom - smells like a normal shop bought mushroom.

Thanks in advance.

I also have photos, but I'm not sure how to attach them to this post. Any help would be appreciated.
