Observation 163839: Leucoagaricus cupresseus (Burl.) Boisselet & Guinb.
When: 2014-04-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Initial staining reaction bright red throughout stipe when handled.

Found near edible Agaricus. I initially thought it was Agaricus fuscofibrillosus based on the bright red staining, but due to the unchanging white gills, now think it might be something in Lepiota.

Glad I thought twice about eating it!
