Ana,when I looked at hover flies I realized that there are so many different kinds. Of the few I looked at, your suggestion was the best fit, but is there an easy was to eliminate the others kinds?brettpim
Are there Lepista sp. which have the fine scales covering the cap?
Hi Mark. congrats on your first spotting. Can you circle the hawk in the picture: :-)
Maybe a waxy cap: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/hygrophora...
I agree with Volvariella bombycina and will suggest this ID
Looks like Chlorophyllum molybdites or Macrolepiota procera.
Some kind of puffball, but not sure which.
I am not suggesting I think it is M. procera as opposed to C. molybdites. The best way to distinguish these is by the gills turning green over time in the latter.
Good reference, thanks!
