    Yes, an Amanita. One of the rare white ones by the look of it. Possibly gemmata.

    I'm guessing you've already got to page 70 by now and know that I'm going to tell you that the answer is no. There are no universal rules of thumb.

    Not even close. Russulas do not have brown stems and aren't this shape. It's either a Galerina or a Laccaria.

    Dean: if you are interested in edible fungi then there's a new book out this week.

    That's absolutely NOT Hemlock. The leaves are nothing like it. Not Giant Hogweed either - too small and the leaves are all wrong. Looks like Cow Parsley (Wild Chervil) to me.
