    Hey guys

    New to mushrooms in general and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the species of mushroom? I thought they were all the same but the small one looks different.

    Cheers

    1. Cap: Flat, I assume round, wasn't in great shape, something has had a bite at it. Slimy to touch, light brown kid of like a perfect cooked pancake.
    2. Fertile surface: see photos as I do not know what any of these are.
    3. Stem: 1 stem, kinda beige in colour.
    4. Spores: Haven't done a spore print yet, hoping this would be quicker
    5. Habit: found them individually but in the same 100m area.
    Habitat: Victoria, Melbourne, medium and above trees all around, wet/damp ground with lots of leaves and debris

    Those look sick.
    You must be very hungry...lol. Just .... don't eat those and get some fresher samples please?
    It helps to get a spore print and to have a sample with a well defined margin, stem and base.
    Did you transport those in your pocket?

    Was it growing from the ground or maybe buried wood? Or non buried wood
