Found this mushroom in a planter strip. It looked old because of the condition it was in. There were 3 of them the largest about 6 or 7" in Dia.

LANDED IN FRONT OF MY WILDLIFE CAMERA
Found in a pile of wood in the garage. Pale green.
Growing in a watered lawn.
Growing on the lower portion of some type of planted grass. Close to the ground.
Growing along a creek.
Growing close to creek (about three feet away) in mostly gravel and sand. Fuzzy leaves.
Black and yellow stripes. Found them before flying around compost but this one was sitting on a succulent. Didn't seem bothered by me.
I suspect that this was picked up with a load of Marigolds from west Petaluma.
I didn't get it in my pictures, but the color has a dusting of purple over the dark sienna background.
Several males pursued this female... but she wasn't having it. A better look shows that perhaps she's past needing to mate.
