Mushrooms in Shrewsbury

This large scaly mushroom attracted my attention.  The smaller red one also of interest.  In both cases the gills are attached.  The larger one had a cap of 10.5"
Going by the black spore deposits I saw on older specimens I think both the Red and the Tan mushrooms are Wine-cap Stropharia,  aka
Stropharia rugosoannulata

a choice edible.

Underside.  Bulbous base with a very thick partial veil ring.

A couple of hours later the gills are noticeably darker.

Sectioned stem.


Spore print black.  Spore, pore at the tip, measured 13.4x8.64 microns
