Agaricus augustus?
    #25140469 - 04/15/18 10:36 AM (6 months, 2 days ago)

Habitat: Under conifer trees in woodchips.
Where does it grow? Eg. woods, pasture, state, province, country, altitude, etc. What does it grow on? Eg. soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?), etc.

Gills: Pale pink colour, not attached
Color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc.

Stem: About 40mm but I cut it with a knife so don't know exactly.
Length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc.

Cap: approx 100mm, brown with scales, convex
Diameter, color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc.

Spore print color: seem to be a palish pink similar to the gills. I could be doing it wrong though. Can you take spore prints on white paper?
Very important!

Bruising:
Color that the mushroom bruises, if any.

Other information: Thought this might be a prince mushroom but I'm not sure. The smell is not overwhelmingly strong but sweet and mushroom. I'm not sure if it smells like bitter almonds though. I found another, much smaller specimen that I thought might also be a prince mushroom (in another location also under conifers) and that did smell quite strong. This one has a fainter but similar smell.

Scent of the mushroom, anything else you think is important, large close-up pictures showing stem, cap and gills.














The smaller specimen

I'm not sure because I cut the stem off and left it in the ground

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional mycologist, I study the macro/micro taxonomy of mushrooms, but I can make mistakes, I'm human, not to mention identification from pictures is difficult. If you want to eat it, varify all identifications of non actives before doing so, it's up to you to be sure we are right.

I like how everyone jumps in to criticiz but didn't offer any help. Pretty sure it was an edible Agaric due to the smell. Probably was actually a prince. Dark purple/chocolate colored spore print.

Cheers idiots :thumbup:

Please be a little more accommodating with new members even though he chose to consume a mushroom
that wasn't given a species name. It is clearly an Agaricus as shown in the pictures. Worst case would
be a date with the toilet, however this one doesn't appear to be any of the toxic species.

Maybe Alan could point in the direction of species here.

OP, where in the world did you find this?

You were offered help, you chose to eat an unidentified mushroom.  Don't get pissy because you didn't get the answer you wanted immediately.  Eating an unidentified mushroom is an extremely foolish thing to do.  You're the only idiot here.

Please don't call other users idiots, it's hurtful and not at all nice or helpful in any way.
It's of course always advisable to have a species-ID before eating something. But OP obviously had an idea what this mushroom was, he knew it was an Agaricus species, and knew that toxic species (in most cases, except one or two rare-ish species) smell unpleasant and bruise yellow. It's not like he picked a random mushroom of the ground and decided to eat it (to get high, as often happens here), he just wanted to know the exact species. To be perfectly honest, I never bother identifying an Agaricus I'm about to eat.
C'mon people, the world is full of hate as it is, let's try to be nice and supportive at least here!  :hug:

Exactly this. Thank you. I am aware that most agarics are edible if they smell good and don't stain.

Knowledge is power people. Don't live your life in fear because the rules say "always get a positive ID". Sure it can be dangerous if you're not confident in your knowledge, but in this instance it was clearly an edible agaric species.


For whoever asked, this was picked yesterday in the South East of England, UK.

That should probably limit the possibilities a bit. Have you been checking locally or regionally relevant resources?

http://www.wildfooduk.com/ is helpful for my end of the pond, I've learned a lot from Marlow's website and great videos too. Read through that page on mushroomexpert.com about the agircus genus, that was also helpful, cheers. Other than that, I'm not too sure about any other regional sources. Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction.

So you think it was a common portobello? Interesting. I'm not sure it tasted the same as a portobello from the local supermarket, I'll have to buy some and compare. This quote from the website Anglerfish linked which I was just talking about seems to ring true particularly with this one:

"Thus, you should not expect to be able to identify every Agaricus collection you make. As Kerrigan says, "[t]here may be cases where the very best solution presently available will be to say that 'this specimen is very close to . . .' and if you learn to live with that, I expect that you will be happier while studying Agaricus." That said, identification of Agaricus species ranges from fairly easy to very difficult."

Well, that's usually the last species I'll think of when seeing wild Agaricus finds.

Maybe these weren't found that far from Ashford in Kent, seeing what they grow and sell there:
