Are these edible mushrooms?
21 Mar 07
It is impossible to be completely certain from the image whether these are edible or not, You also need to look at whether the base stains yellow, what they smell like, growing habit, country and spore print. Its likely that they are not anything seriously poisonous, but whether they are edible is another matter

It looks like a species from Amanita family. But they prefer growing around pines. It might be easier to identify if you were to look for mushrooms that grow in lawns. Never eat them unless you know they are safe. You might be able to visit your local extension. They might know what it is.
