Parasol Mushroom

Parasol mushrooms are abundant it the pasture near our house. They are said to be edible and delicious but some very similar looking mushrooms are poisonous so we are not are not confident enough to try.
The American species which has greenish gills instead of white is poisonous and is spreading in Britain.
Even the edible species can cause gastric upsets in some people.
