    I am trying to do an art project about mushrooms and I wanted to put in the ones that kinda look like folded up umbrellas. The only problem is that I can't find any pictures of them and I don't know what they are called. If anyone has any pics of them I could borrow I would greatly appreciate it. Plus pics of any cool looking ones would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Google images of:
    morels
    false morels
    shaggy mane
    inky cap
    liberty cap
    dung bell
    yellow parasol
    western grisette
    parrot mushroom

    These are the most closed umbrella looking ones.
    But many more look like that when they are young.

    Good luck with your search

    I found the pictures I needed. Thank you everyone for helping out. I don't know why I like mushrooms so much but I do.

    Imp: Thanks for the mushroom names. I quite a few I would like to paint later on.

    Ivan3: those are beautiful mushrooms. Thanks for the photo.

    sgtmom52: OMG I love the way that one looks! It's sooo cute.
