As like you I’m not a Lepiota expert. I was basing some of my thoughts after refering to micheal Kou web site. but yes there some differences between the two. I hoping for another good flush of this in a couple of days so I ll be able to do some more intecence of an observation.

MushroomExpert.com would be a good place to start from.

The stature/colors of this mushroom would suggest something closer to the Macrolepiota procera group. I don’t know how to interpret the reddish staining. L. amiricanus always looks more study and stains yellow before turning red, but typically this mushroom is found with lots of red (scales & stipe) on it even before handling. I’m by no means a lepiota expert, but these common mushrooms are fairly easy to recognize once you get the original ID right.

If this is A macrolepiota the key word is Macro then what is this in
http://mushroomobserver.org/143544?q=1ReNT/ There are totaly different. The mushroom in this obeservation is some what small in compairison to the other one and its This has a swollen base and that bruises red along with the stalk and gills, after some time. This mushroom is quite prolific and after tonight rain there is a strong posibilety There will be more like acouple 100 of them so I’ll get more pics and do some disecting. Im not sayin you all are wrong but the red bruising is not Charetistic for Macrolepiota. sorry my spell check is not working.
