Observation 164781: Agaricus californicus Peck
When: 2010-10-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These mushrooms were growing in my lawn several years ago, and I’m just wondering if anyone knows what they are?
The date might not be exact, that’s the time stamp on the photo from when I posted it to flickr…it was sometime in October, though. Growing in the grass, with a redwood nearby (15 feet away or so), and oaks and pines in the area.
