Hello fellow mycology enthusiasts,

I am currently on holiday and am totally new to this field and area, I know that tis' the season I happened to stumble across these in my travels.

Anyone who is experienced know if these are safe, or just look alikes, any advice is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Nothing there you'd want to be eating. You've got a couple of species there too.
Since we depend on an abundance of functioning ecosystems to cleanse our water, enrich our soil and manufacture the very air we breathe, biodiversity is clearly not an inheritance to be discarded carelessly. Edward O. Wilson 1992

Donít believe all this crap you hear about primitive people and their lovely equilibrium with the environment. All societies disturbed the environment to the extent of their population and the technology available. They're the only two things that matter - population and the technology available.

When psychoactive mushrooms are bruised the bruised area becomes blue.

As do other mushrooms. It's a nice indicator, but not conclusive.

Alright thanks everyone, will give these a miss as they did not show any sign of bruising, be sure to remember this the next time I am on the hunt, they're certainly interesting looking fungi, had a rusty brown spore print anyone know what species they might be?
