Tubelare -

“…The staining on the stipe, especially the base of the stipe, is a strong indication. I think your instinct here is good…” Chlorophyllum olivieri, brunneum, and rachodes all stain some form of brown in the stem. As well, they all stain some shade or pink/red/orange/saffron when the flesh is cut. There are better macroscopic features to rely on. Here’s an excellent link

http://www.svims.ca/council/Chloro.htm . When you get to 3b in the key, C. aeruginosa is listed as the species. There is no Chlorophyllum aeruginosa, it’s a typo. It should say C. rachodes.

Should have an abrupt basal bulb, I don’t think it looks like this specimen has one. Why not C. rhacodes?
