often turn yellowish in age and when bruised. Agaricus arvensis and Agaricus macrosporus are two similar species. Maybe the upcoming monograph will provide clarity but I doubt it.

any yellow on those babies?

or is the photo a bit washed out? Our “arvensis” in the west gets pretty yellow by this age in the field, even w/out handling.
