Observation 118316: Agaricus L.

These were growing in an open, semi-grassy area near the banks of the lake.
Caps were up to 5.5 cm across.
No significant odor and no yellowing or reddening.
Spores were ~ 6.0-6.9 X 4.6-5.0 microns.
They don’t seem to key out with local known species?
!2-1 2012.
Revisited same location after 3 days and significant rain.
New growth appeared a little more pinkish under wetter conditions.
Indoor shot in last photo and in hand, they seem to lose some of the pinkness.
Specimens relatively fragile in that the caps dislodge from the stipe quite easily.
Now will have more dried material in my possession.

it’s like a short, squat arorae…it both reddens and yellows.

I believe he said he would look at them a little closer, dry them and probably send them to Rick Kerrigan.

They remind me of arvensis, and I seem to see a bit of yellow there, but those toasted brown caps are unusual.

why not dry them and give ’em to Kerrigan in the next couple of weeks at the NAMA foray?

They are certainly interesting, and I doubt that they are phenolic.
