Id help...Agaricus silvaticus or.......
    #11352659 - 10/30/09 05:30 PM (8 years, 5 months ago)

Ok so I have this agaricus that fits the bill exactly for silvaticus but I cooked up a unopened one and the flavor was horrible. I mean it was so bad I spit it out, it tasted like a highlighter. So what other agaricus could it be?

Cap: Variegated with fiberey brownish scales radiating from a brownish center to a paler whitish/ tan margin. with a size about 1/2 an inch to 2 inches. incurved at first then expanding to flattened. no bruising

Gills: Mostly pink even in the older specimens, the younger ones are pinkish purple and the older ones are pinkish brown, free, close.

Stem: Short with a slight enlargement at the base, white, with younger ones having a slight ring, solid not hollow, slightly fibery near the cap, no bruising.

smells like a mixture of a pleasant agaricus mushroom and phenol.
found in grass growing gregariously and solitary.

like i said tastes like a highlighter.








sorry for the crapy photos my phone doesnt do good micro shots, I can't adjust the exposure or even zoom in. It's a samsung instinct, it's completely touch screen but has no zoom on the camera. lame.
