Thanks. I was unaware of the evanescent annulus. Nice to know.

Is typical of meadow mushrooms.

There is a very faint annulus in one picture. Almost a line.

The most unusual thing about this Agaricus is the near lack of annulus, but the thick tissue attached to the cap edge (part of the annulus?).
