ID Please - finds in the ECHO farm, Ft. Myers. FL

Hi Everyone! I'm wondering if anyone can give me an ID for these two species of mushrooms I found today. These were both found rowing at the base of our banana trees, which are grown on raised beds, basically a composted banana leaves/stems + other organic matter mix. They were both hiding in the shade. The red capped one was right at the base of the banana trees, in a very moist and shady area. The other, the matured pin, I believe is an Agaricus mushroom. I'm hoping subrufescens, because I'm actually working with a similar species in the lab right now.



The Agaricus was growing all over the place on the raised beds. most of them were very mature, if not overly so. Spore print seems to be a dark purple, similar to grocery store portabella, but that's just from looking at some matured specimens.



I picked four specimens and cloned two, and photographed the other two, one of each species. I picked the larger, nicer ones to clone.
The red capped mushroom has a wonderful texture. I'm very interested in if it is an edible or not. When I broke it to clone it the stem had a texture like firm styrofoam, very easy to work with cloning. Anyone interested in plates or syringes of these, PM me, and we'll see what we can do for you in a week or so, when the clones are transfered to new plates.



Thanks in advance!
Light and Love,
Jeremy Davis

hi Jeremy, Agaricus mushrooms are difficult to ID down to species without a microscopic..

and also you should take a picture of several specimens, from button-size to maturity.

you might get a better response if this was in the Mushroom Identification forum, so i will move it there.

Well thank you! I'm hoping to ID these mushies the lazy way -have ya'll do it, but if no one knows, I'll have to do my own hunting in the books. I'm gonna bring Mushroom Demystified and the Audobon book to work with me and try to figure these out. I wish I had Kimbrough's book on Florida mushrooms, gotta get that one!

I'll try to get more pics of the larger specimens. I see these all the time on the farm - always in the raised beds with trees (banana and Moringa olifera specifically.).
Anyone who can help me be lazy?
PLease?
Light and Love,
Jeremy Davis
