I agree with Daniel – R. Kerrigan has suggested that that name is not well applied in N. Am. Definitely same group and quite similar, but name pending.

you may have found what concessus decided was an Agaricus sp. nov., to be described by Rick Kerrigan sometime in the future. (See MO 144591, 144215, 143494, 143755)

Apparently Agaricus campestris does not occur in the U.S.

This would be surprising to my uncle, who hunted “A. campestris” most of his life. And ate same.

Evanescent annulus seems descriptive of this species. But other than Agaricus, still not sure what to call it.

Did you same any material, Tim?
