Author's notes

Red/brown coloured cap with white showing through where the skin is peeling away. Cap was quite slender in shape and approx. 5 cms across. Gills were a pristine white. Stalk the same colour as the cap. It was approx. 10 cms in height and felt quite fragile.

Nice looking fungus. Looks like Lepiota haemorrhagica, however that turns blood red when bruised.
