Observation 11452: Lepiota (Pers.) Gray

When: 2008-09-21

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

I didn’t see a ring on any stem, but the white free gills and cap appearance suggest Lepiota, or one of the closely allied genera like Leucoagaricus and Leucocoprinus.

These were scattered under birch and pine near that sandy-soil area. Final two photos show some groups of these mushrooms with their surroundings (last one isn’t in focus, but it’s still good enough to show how some were distributed).
