They grow from Eugene, Oregon in the south to British Colombia inthe north. and from east of the Cascades to the olympuicws int he west. The lawn varieties have been kn9ow to fruit al year round depending on a freeze. WE had two last year with snow.
Two days ago, @cro, Psillygirl and I found two on a lawn in north Seattle.
They grow on new wellmanicured lawns throughout the region, but n 9ot as prolific as years agop. They habitat is pasture where they are very extremely rare to find, but in a man-made environment they grow profusely along with P. fimetaria and are usually indistiguishable form P. fimetaria macroscopically they are similar.
Int he fall, October to December they will appear in wood chips withoout any lawn. THe spores usually come in t int he topsoil for the muclhed shrooms fromt he fertilizers used in the gardens.
In 30 years only found one patch in mulch in the city in the month of March.
In the Ultimate Shroom Guide posted here at the Shroomery are dozens of photos of both lawn varieties and here is the URL for the Woodchip varieties.
