|Volvaria bomb. (can't remember how to spell this one)|
Found on a rotting elm log, now a rare fungi in the UK. Stinks to high heaven but is edible, I wouldn't have thought it would be very tasty as it seems to pick up the smell of the elm tree itself.
Don't know much else about this one but the family has one thats parasites other fungi and another species that grows in arable fields on the straw. This last one is extremely common were I live.

bien beau ce champignon on dirait le toit d'une petite maison de dessins animés
bonne prise, bons détails
bravo et merci du partage
your photo shows exactly Volvariella bombycina (Schaeffer 1774) Singer 1951.
Your notes are not completely correct: the family of this specie, that is Pluteaceae, does't include parasitic fungi. They are all saprophyte specie, with very few exceptions: for example Volvariella surrecta (Knapp 1829) Singer 1949 which grows on others specie.
