Inside the Great Glasshouse today , the welcome return of Lepiota cristata , Stinking Dapperling - we found a single specimen  a few years ago . Today there were several hidden beneath some of the plants - the description 'stinking' is a bit harsh but it does smell of a quite strong organic chemical. It should  be enough to put off people mistaking it for an edible agaric (considered to be poisonous ).
