Observation 136579: Agrocybe pediades group

When: 2013-06-16

Collection location: Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: goatshoes

No specimen available

Found in my suburban yard amongst many of what I think are Panaelina foenisecii and although they are similar in shape these are very yellow and orange, a bit smaller and thinner, and were growing next to each other. This led me to assume that maybe they were different, but of course I am not sure. So, I’ll leave it to the more educated on this matter to decide. I also compared them to other smaller ones of the “Pan Foe”‘s guesising that maybe they begin out as a lighter yellow color but this didnt seem to be the case..it seemed the younger and older "pan foe’s" had the same browish/tanish tone and not the yellow/orange appearance of these. Another feature I noticed was as these caps(after one day) dried out and they became very “bumpy or warty” and the “pan foe’s” (after one day)mostly, seem to maintain their usual smoothness . Although, both spore prints are brown, these mushrooms had lighter colore gills.
