Looks like it.

Looks like it.

In cases like that you will not get a good spore deposit. A quick microscopic slide from the gill can be prepared and this will help to confirm / refute the id.

I guess, but I’m not really sure where the line is drawn with the A. praecox group, are all Agrocybe that kind of look like it with an annulus part of it?

OK, but identifying to the praecox group won’t need microscopy, right?

Is brown, you can even see it on the cap.

Its hard to identify Agrocybe without microscopic work…

spore print & ID

Tried twice, but couldn’t get a print, except possibly a very faint brownish color (or my imagination).

I see a vote came in w/o as much confidence on its ID. What else might it be, then?
