Observation 100035: Agaricus L.

When: 2012-06-23

Collection location: Big Thicket, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

This single specimen was found in the Big Sandy Creek Unit growing on the ground in mixed woods.
Cap was 5 cm across.
Gills were free, purplish, and close.
Spore print was purple brown (see photo).
Spores were ~ 5 X 4 microns, smooth and broadly elliptical.
After cutting it, I noted an anise odor.
The purplish gills and spores don’t quite indicate Agaricus, but the spore shape and size and other characteristics point in that direction.

on the cap and even the annulus.
The flesh was white and I didn’t notice any obvious staining.

almost looks olive green in the first photo, but I suppose it is really white..,

Did you slice it? Any staining?
