Notes: Agarricus but what species? I was going to guess A. subrutilescens, but then noticed that cap flesh stains yellow near cuticle when cut. Both Arora and Trudell & Ammirati say that A. subrutilescens,is non-staining.
In duff (and possibly bark dust). Nearest tree was a spruce.
I do not have a mature specimen, so cannot tell real maximum sizes and other characters.
- appears brown from a distance, but actually white, with abundant brown fibrils
- max diameter 6.5 cm
- mild almond odor and taste
- flesh white, 1 cm thick
- cap flesh stains yellow near cuticle when cut. See 3rd photo.
- young gills off-white
- shaggy white starting at partial veil downward for about 1/2 length of stipe, then brown fibrils
- almost all the stipe was below the duff; only the cap was showing. See 2nd photo
- 17.5 cm long
- 2.5 cm thick
- slightly bulbous base
- almond taste
- membranous partial veil still present in all specimens, so I cannot be certain what annulus will look like. But by how it’s attached to the stipe, I’m guessing it will be skirt-like
- stipe does not stain on cutting or bruising
