ID Request revisited (pictures)
    #1408220 - 03/25/03 10:26 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I found this mushroom approx. 3 months ago, posted the picture, but never quite got a positive ID. I was just looking through some of my pictures, and found it, still un sure of what it could be.

I thought at first glace that it was Lepiota procera, the parasol mushroom, but, looking at pictures, I have decided that it is NOT!

Ive decided that it is most likely an Agracius.

Anyways here we go with the discription:

Habitat: Found in the coastal mountains of Northern California, growing in sandy soil under a mixture of Oak and Manzanita...also some scrubby brush. I believe it was growing from the humus of Oak however.

Cap: 10-12 cm, white with radiating brown fibrils. Surface dry, smooth, margin smooth.

Stalk: 2 cm thick, hollow, somewhat shaggy. Membranous veil. Base equal.

Gills: Close, pinkish grey (see picture)

Man, I can't think of anything else... I never got a sporeprint either, so that might be a problem. Im posting this mainly to see if anyone is familiar with this species.

Here are the pictures... CLICK TO ENLARGE :smile:

The best match I can find is Agaricus subrutilescens. That species has a purple-brown cap and yours is white, but both are conspicuously fibrillose. But compare the appearance of the partial veil and stem below the veil - yours is pretty unusual, and this species is the best (only close) match I've found.

Let's see if anybody else can come up with a match.

Happy mushrooming!

Agaricus arvensis?

Pink gills in the young turning to dark brown with age.

Wow...

ToxicMan, you definetly got it. I checked around all the websites which had Agaricus subrutilescens pictured, and most of them looked very similar. The gill structure is extremely similar, and so is the veil and stem.

I think the cap fades as it gets older. THe coloration of the cap I think is more purple when younger. My specimen was somewhat older I believe.

So it was edible. It smelled really good. I was almost going to give it a taste, but decided not to. It was weird, but the second I found it, I thought to myself... This is an edible mushroom...strange.
