Mushroom or a Flower - Lentinellus Omphalodes (perhaps).

First time I found this mushroom, but it is hard to identify.

Thanks Tom! The English have always been very good losers! ;-))))

Lesley, you have won. The winner has to eat the mushroom, which is not poisonous, but inedible (bitter). Since Peter is far away, I volunteer to take his prize. Anyway, it looks like Rooney can score again [on and off the field ;-)], so the English can breathe easier.

A mushroom very well disguised as a flower ... has even borrowed sheet!

Lana Maria, Thanks for your visit, first time I see this one. Thanks for the likes.

:-D TomRose,It is not properly. It is not Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) and not Marasmius Autumn (Armillaria mellea). Lentinellus omphalodes is wrong too. This subfamily Polyporineae, and the genus Merulius, perhaps. And it would be better if you it not eaten! Slava :-D

Thank you Spinner for giving your 5 cents here. The first two, I was also quite sure it is not a match. The one suggested by Peter is very close, not only by photo, but also by description. I will check your suggestion and may go next week to the same place to see, if I will find it again.

Very interesting and nice photo

Thank you Angel for your visit and like!

Spinner, I found some more of this mushroom on Wednesday and it has a stem. I do not think it is Polyporineae It is quite soft and it has wide, white gills.

Cockroach Spinner on September 25, 2010

Yes Tom, it is desirable to have still other foreshortening. But have legs, gills both soft and edible pulp some kinds from Polyporineae.
