Observation 161147: Agaricus campestris group
When: 2014-03-10
(34.7444° -120.2783° 571m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Mushroom was found growing in a group of 7 or 8 specimens in what looked like relatively dry dirt and low growing grass/weeds approximately one week after several inches of rain fell in Los Alamos Ca.

Daytime temperatures in the high 70’s, nightime temps in the low 50’s.

Mushroom had a snow white top with rough texturing. relatively short stem, no volva, no annulus, closely spaced gills, gills not attached to stem. Pulling the mushroom up by the stem didn’t yield much mycelia from the ground.

Specimen had a chocolate brown spore print and smelled like a “fresh mushroom” – no notable or unpleasant odor.

This is my first submission to mushroom observer. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide ID’ing this one!
