Nice!

Judging by the umbonate cap and the pink coloured gills:

That (very probably) is the rose-gilled grisette:

well, when I was a student we were studying on some diseases due to poisonous substances - one of which was due to toxicity after eating the poisonous mushroom Amanita phalloides. I noticed most of my friends looking at me, and saying that they thought it would be one of my possible future problems...........

:P

Still haven't eaten any wild mushrooms, yet.
