On forest floor at Narshapur forest near Hyderabad on 30/8/09.
Both found together under huge forest trees/ lianas/ cover with little light reaching there, close to a water channel.
Are both shapes of the same species?

Hallo Garg ji,
this mushroom looks to me from the family parasol mushroom,
See if the characters match. I can't say, if the ones we find in europe are much different than the ones in India. In Europe we eat the parasol mushrooms, very nice aroma. But one has to be sure of the identity.

Garg ji,

Please check these pictures.

Experts from CABI, UK identified it as Macrolepiota, through pestnet
yahoo group.

A reply from Kiran ji:
"The first two photographs seem to be of the edible mushroom as already
identified. I photographed one the size of small dinner plate in the
national park in Mumbai.

Dear Gargji,
These mushrooms are commonly known as 'Field Parasol' and botanically known as Macrolepiota procera. I was in Leh, Ladakh and have returned today only. I have taken pictures of various plants growing there. Will send u for identification.
