Looks like a parasol mushroom. Edible. E&OE.

Hi Maffi
I think it's a "Shaggy Parasol" mushroom. If it bruises a bright red colour when the stem is cut then that confirms it. Our River Cottage mushroom book says it must be cooked before being eaten, and then advises that you try a small amount first. SWMBO has tried it - and survived. Damn.
Thanks for continuing to follow my blog!
