We have one very large specimen put in an appearance next to our driveway so it cannot be overlooked.
It is the size of a dinner plate and the stark white stands out from the dark leaf litter.
I am fairly sure the identification is the False Parasol Chlorophyllum molybdites which is poisonous where as a similar looking species is the Parasol Mushroom Macrolepiota dolichaula is edible.
This fungus fly Tapeigaster luteipennis must have thought all its birthdays had arrived with the size of this one.
Other species have not been so easy to identify but I will keep working on them.
