Help with identification


Recommended Posts

Hello mushroom friends,


I have been searching through the web to try and find an answer to what this species may be. I believe it belongs to the Agaricales group, with these mushrooms having thin gills on their underside. 


These were enormous, spanning around 15cm across. 


Any help would be fantastic. Thanks!

If I had to guess with the info at hand,  I would say it looks like Neolentinus lepideus, common name Scaly Sawgill or Train Wrecker.  The other possibility is Pholiota squarrosoides.  Next time include pictures of the underside. Neolentinus has gills with jagged edges, hence Sawgill name. They are also spread out more than Pholiota, I believe.
