for an ID you need a photo of the cap, another of the gills, and a third photo of the whole thing cut in half lengthwise. Mushrooms are notorious for being difficult to ID.

Yeah I heard a spore print would help too. This morning it has opened up.

Very cool. Yeah see if you can get those photos and I'll do my best to key it out for you. Also it could help to know what part of the country you are from.

I am intrigued with mushrooms, just never studied on them. They are very interesting.

Not to mention, for many genera, microscopic photos of spores and basidia (spore growing cells) and some information about how the flesh stains from various chemicals and when broken. But apparently not in this case lol.
