Rose-Gilled Grisette

Volvopluteus gloiocephalus


Fairly large white gilled mushroom.


Found on a small farm near the coast of Surman, Libya. No so common in the area.


I would like to thank RandyL for suggesting the ID for this mushroom.

Can't really be 100% sure without seeing pictures of the gills and base. It does seem like the best bet based on the information given though. It is certainly not a Leucopaxillus.

Thanks RandyL. If you are sure this is Volvopluteus gloicephalus I will correct it.

This is likely Volvopluteus gloicephalus, which is common in garden areas and has a pink spore print.
