More fungus among us

Here in our backyard another mushroom appeared. The cap is about 4 inches across. The stem of this one has an interesting twist. Not going to consume this, but can anyone help with an ID on this?

  1. You are wise not to consume any mushrooms found in your yard. If you really want to know, there is always google. If you pick it for study, use gloves, some of them are deadly when touched too! Let me know what it is, if you search for it.


  2. I wish my mom was computer savvy or had an iphone. She took classes in mycology at the University of Washington and was an avid mushroom hunter back in the day. But she’s never touched a computer or smart phone in her life.
