The slow persistent staining doesn’t match that species, as does the “typical edible Agaricus” smell Justin described. Though, I don’t really know where to start with florida Agaricus….

Agaricus xanthodermus- but like the comment earlier a smell confirmation would make this one an easy pin point… Phenolic scent? Latin literally translates to “yellow staining skin” Xantho=yellow…..dermus=skin.

We are starting to get A.xanthodermus on lawns here in central Washington right now btw.

Hope this might help out :)

They smell like a typical edible Agaricus.
The staining takes a few hours but will definitely stain persistently and remain after drying.

This species has no tree associates, I’ve only found them in grassy areas and fields

The 2 pics in this observation are the same specimen.

Smell?

Sure seems to be staining yellow, is the color change persistent?
