Observation 112162: Chlorophyllum Massee
When: 2012-10-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This mushroom is fairly large, and the cap is wider than my hand. I’m afraid of touching it for fear of having an allergic reaction (I’m already allergic to a host of other things – I’d rather not test out an idea) or of it exploding, like one hilariously terrifying mushroom I encountered on a trip to Saudi Arabia.

As someone who has no idea what she is doing, I have decided to go ahead and post these pictures with the hopes that someone can identify this ’shroom for me and help kick-start my new hobby.

TL,DR; big cap, too afraid/no idea how to collect spore sample, wild, popped up after heavy rain and relatively cool weather

Again, it’s a big mushroom.
