Recognized by sight: if it doesn’t stain yellow and then red. I doubt it is americanus. There are also no violaceous tones I can see and the stem doesn’t appear to be spindle shaped

Oh that is a long time, well the habitat and everything else fits for L. americanus but alas I am no mycologist.

I do not recall seeing any staining after some time. These photos were taken almost two years ago, so I cannot give 100% confidence in saying that either.

Did you notice any staining?

Check out one of my collections of Leucoagaricus americanus….

Note the staining, they go from white to yellowish to reddish.
