It's amazing that a deadly mushroom can be so nonchalantly brown. i love it.

Beautiful shots of a magnificent yet dangerous fruiting body. Great detail!

As to your question Rieko, it looks unlikely that they're both the same. Note the distinct green/olive tones on this mushroom, while that of yours are -- as I observe -- various shades of brown along with white. There are other distinguishing features as well, but this one alone can help separate it from the one you've found. Based on my minute mycological knowledge, yours appears to be some form of discolored Russula. Good luck with the ID!

I spotted these.
Are these the same mushrooms (they are light color green/brown)?
