Definitely not a saffron Milk cap. They have an orange colour with green flecks, hollow stem. the milk they exude has a lovely saffron colour, (hence the name). Not sure what the OP posted though.

Is this a Blusher?
Seen today at the base of an oak.

IMO definitely not Blusher (Amanita rubescens) - not convinced it's Shaggy Scalycap either as the gills would be adnate and they look more emarginate in the photo.

Any suggestion to what it might be? There was something similar on another forum but no one could come up with a better id.

I'm sorry to say no, I don't. I admit that the closest in all my references is Shaggy Scalycap but I am still concerned about the gill shape. Perhaps Wander could investigate a little further?

Shaggy Scalycap: flesh yellowish - darkening; smell and taste of radish; gills pale yellow at first becoming brown, adnate; spore print brown. However, even that doesn't necessarily separate it from other scalycaps.

I think these are tawny funnel caps, however they seem darker than most guides suggest. Found in a young pine plantation, in a ring around 3m dia. Plenty of them around, I spotted several rings.
