Shaggy Parasols (chlorophyllum rhacodes)

I brought a couple of these home around the time I was starting mushroom hunting thinking they were the edible Parasols (macrolepiota procera). Luckily, I grew suspicious at the red staining which occurred when I cut them, and after some research realised they were Shaggy Parasols, the look-a-like that can cause serious illness in some people. You can also distinguish these two mushrooms by the snakeskin pattern on parasol mushrooms, that doesn’t occur on shaggy parasols.
