I found this fungus on Corsica (France). Can you please help me to identify it?

    $\begingroup$ In fungi, you should always look at the underside of the hat, which gives big clues to group/species determination. $\endgroup$ Oct 11, 2016 at 13:30

Based on the dark lamellae and the ring around the foot, I would bet on something in the Agaricus genus. The French Wikipedia gives quite some details about common species in this genus: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agaric

Try looking up Chlorophyllum brunneum or commonly called a shaggy parasol. http://www.mykoweb.com/CAF/species/Chlorophyllum_brunneum.html Hope this helps.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. I think this goes in the right direction. However, it could also be commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Chlorophyllum_molybdites or any other Chlorophyllum, I guess? $\endgroup$ Oct 11, 2016 at 15:08

    $\begingroup$ Most Lepiota don't have such dark lamellae. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Besides the lamellae colour, the foot seems too wide in proportion to the hat for a Lepiota, in my opinion. $\endgroup$
