going off the illustrations given, but now that I look at the description closer A. cylindrica has a stem described as “(25)40–110 × 4–16 mm” & “below annulus fibrillose to squamulose”.

Nauta has this to say of the annulus on A. cylindrica-

Annulus at 0.75–0.80 of height of stipe, 6–10 mm wide, descending, pendant to patent, rather thin, white to pale brown, with smooth to sometimes striate upperside; underside flocculose-squamu- lose

Without microscopy, this observation should probably be called “Agrocybe”. There are several European Agrocybe with big rings. God knows how many there are in NA.

Agrocybe cylindrica even occur in the states? This looks even less like A. cylindrica than A. praecox with that large persistent annulus.

Because it doesn’t look like

what I call A. praecox; with the persistant, flaring annulus and the darker, umbillicate caps and they aren’t growing where I would expect to find A. praecox. I didn’t vote with a high level of confidence on anything. A. praecox cluster might be a better suggestion, as it might seem less arbitrary to some. ;)

let me know what indicates A. praecox is wrong to you? How about A. acericola, is that even a natural “species”? I’m having a hard time understanding the concept behind it, do you know a good source?

As far as I can see, without more info it would be hard to confidently apply any of the proposed names as they are arbitrary. Please correct me if I’m wrong. :)

Am I missing something?

Is not “guessing” the whole point of suggesting names and voting with a confidence level?
