hi.i'm the third one, who suggest you: Genus: lepiota ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&cp... ). When i read "diameter about 20 cm" i think, it could be "macrolepiota procera" ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&cp... ) ---> he is the biggest in the genus:lepiota/macrolepiota. good luck (very possible a lepiota species !!!)
