    It's a don't-eat-it-if-you-don't-know-what-it-is variety. Of which there are many.

    Even if you bought in spent mushroom compost as a mulch.

    Not sure, but I wouldn't eat it(but then I'm not keen on 'em anyways).

    I used to go mushrooming with my grandad when I was pre-teenage age, he always used to say if it was a flat mushroom it was edible if it was peelable- now I’m older I’m more of a wimp I’m pretty sure it is edible as not yellow staining it’s just been a long time since I’ve foraged for them.

    Have a look at https://www.wildfooduk.com/mushroom-guide/ and you'll see several that look similar to yours - including some that are poisonous. That's why we don't try to identify fungi from photos. You need an expert to see the actual mushroom and its habitat.

    Thanks for all your input I’m not gonna eat it.... I’m at work tonight would struggle to explain to the ward sister I was off due to eating a funny mushroom
    I’ll have to get my Dad to have a look when he’s back from France!

    I didn't think for one moment you'd eat it - but other people will look at your photos and may think they have one the same and who knows what they'd do.
    In France you can take fungi into the chemist to be identified. Wish we could do that here.

    That’d be great if we could- can you imagine turning up to boots with a mushroom to get it identified? Hahaha
