Smell it first to be sure. If it doesn't smell like poster paint then it's edible.

It definitely does not smell like poster paint.
It smells like a typical mushroom.

Thank you for all the helpers on this page... i am so very grateful.

Sooo...
This shroom seems like an agricus, does not smell like "poster paint"...
can I assume it is edible?
Would you feed it to your kids?

Any other helpful info is really appreciated.
Forgive my novice questioning...
I just am not really familiar with agaricus and want to be sure.

Not to my kids, but if you are confident in the answers that were supplied I would go for it. But please not the kids.  :lolwut:
