    #15086819 - 09/16/11 01:01 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

Habitat: found growing in a grassy park near a deciduous tree


Gills: pink, light pink, not attached close, crowded.


Stem: 4-5 inches in length, thick, dense, white with some light browning and flaking.


Cap: 4.5" diameter, convex, crackly, light brown and white.

Spore print color: Chocolate brown
Very important!

Bruising:No bruising evident.


Smells good! there are many more at the park, i want to collect more if they're campestris!

thank you!

Definitely not A. campestris, the annulus is too persistent.  Based on your description, it looks like it could be another edible Agaricus sp.

As Byrain said, definitely not A. campestris.

An accurate ID to species is actually pretty difficult for Agaricus species. The fact that it smells good is a good indicator that it's one of the edibles. Having said that, you should also be cautious, and eat only a small amount the first time (less than 1/8 of a tsp). A lot of people are sensitive to various Agaricus species, and eating less will help keep you from getting as sick if you're one of them.

Happy mushrooming!

Well I ate it! ..a third of it anyways. it was delicious and did not make me sick at all :awesome: If i am able to eat it would it be safe to feed to other people? Or should they also sample a very small portion?

Each person needs to sample separately.
A small amount, then wait...

Even edible Agaricus species can cause some people illness.  Just the way it is.
