|Horse mushroom, Agaricus arvensis.|
We took a stroll up the Waun Las meadows today. The grass at the top meadow was a bit long for a good look around but our visit the lower meadow was quite profitable. There were a number of very large field mushrooms, one had a cap around 20 cms across with a huge stout stipe. From their size we took these to be Horse mushrooms, Agaricus arvensis.
There were also a number of Waxcaps including Ballerina (Hygrocybe calyptriformis), Parrot (Hygrocybe psittacina) and Meadow (Hygrocybe pratensis) waxcaps, and a few entoloma sp. that were past their best.
