Florida, lawn, mushroom needed id *pics
    #1838559 - 08/21/03 09:14 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

This mushroom was found outside in my yard. It was growing in grass, the top of the mushroom was white and becomes tan towards the middle. The veil was white with brown spores. The spore print is brown/black.

The mushroom seems to look a violet color around the edges of the cap, as if the gills are purple or redish violet in color.

The spore print leans heavily towards black/brown.


A picture of the cap and spore print.

We need to see the underside of the cap and the stem more than the top of the cap. It would also be very helpful if we knew whether the gills were attached to the stem or not.

From your description so far, it's probably an Agaricus. They're a difficult genus to get to species in. Some are edible, some are poisonous, none are active.

Happy mushrooming!

Being a Floridian, if i saw that growing on my lawn from that distance I would say it was an Agaricus right away. specifically: A. blazeii or more probably A. floridanus because the cap seems more campestroid than the A. blazeii. Other than that details are needed of the underside and the stem to id to species.

thanks mj you are right but A. blazeii can get pretty big and the scales pretty non-existant, especially with some rain.
