Walking through my garden to the mailbox see these white mushrooms. I am in EU om heavy clay soil, the grass is more meadow mixed with all sorts of wild plants and wild herbs mowed short. Near these grows a rowan from a sapling found in woods. Is not moisture drops but texture. Anyone know name of it?

There are several types of white mushrooms but none others are as pure snowy white as what you have there, which looks to me like Destroying Angel mushroom (Amanita Virosa in Europe) it is beautiful to look at but is deadly toxic. See pictures below for identifying comparisons of stems, veils and cap as those mushrooms' caps continue to unfold and open up:

Information about Destroying Angel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destroying_angel

Those ARE drops of moisture on the mushroom caps.

The best, edible mushrooms grow usually in a forest.

You're welcome. We get a lot of those D.A. mushrooms growing in forests and on lawns at this time of year where I live (rainforest environment) and they look particularly enchanting when they're growing in fairy rings. I like to take pictures of them. Except for slugs which are immune to the amatoxin for some reason, nothing else here can eat them (or any other mushrooms with amatoxins in them) and your two mushrooms look like a slug has been nibbling on them.

That is a nice picture you took of the mushrooms with the beads of water on them.

With those raggy, frilly edges and the strips of shredded stem I think it is Pleurotus pulmonarius.

Pleurotus pulmonarius is more commonly known as phoenix white oyster mushroom and is one of several species of oyster mushrooms. That one pictured is quite old with holes and rips in it from slugs and bugs eating it and it's so old it's on the verge of rotting and melting. They typically grow in clusters on wood, not in soil unless the soil has lots of chips of wood in it.

It looks like a destroying angel mushroom.

Quote:
A woman is dead after she ate "destroying angel" mushrooms growing along I-684 in Bedford.
Officials say 61-year-old Zoila Tapia, of White Plains, was walking in the woods behind the rest stop on July 6 when she stumbled across the mushrooms. Less than 24 hours after eating the mushrooms, Tapia experienced nausea, diarrhea and stomach pains. Authorities say her death could have been avoided with penicillin or other medications, however, they say she sought help too late.

The state Department of Transportation maintains that all of the killer mushrooms have been removed from the area.

The mushrooms are called destroying angels because they are known as one of the deadliest on the planet. They have a white stalk and sponge, which is roughly six to 16 centimeters wide. The mushrooms have a dry to slightly sticky coat. The grills are crowded together and attached to the upper stalk.While no one knows for sure why Tapia consumed the mushrooms, some drivers believe signs should be put up to warn the public not to eat the vegetation.

However, one man believes that would take away from the natural beauty of the area. "I think it's commonsense. You don't have to put signs up with something obvious. We don't eat pansies and they look good. You just don't eat them," says Bob Hardegen, of New Jersey.

It takes three days to die from mushroom poisoning. Three! It's a slow and painful death.
