Just behind my house I was lucky to find a bunch of Australian Parasol mushrooms (Macrolepiota clelandii) growing on the verge of a gravel road as they do every year. Their stem/stipe had the snakeskin pattern seen from Macrolepiota procera which kind of demonstrates how close these are to that mushroom.

The edibility of this mushroom is unknown.

Photos 5-7 are images of another similar Macrolepiota species that was found under an Oak tree three days earlier. Quite similar but i was uncertain of the identity of this mushroom.
