Rationale for ID: This specimen was determined to be Cholorophyllum molybdites because of the habitat, spores and gills. Spore print for this specimen was green. Spores were smooth, elliptical and had variable size (7.5 µm smallest with 25 µm biggest) .This specimen is also known to be found in lawns forming a fairy ring. The gills turning from white to green and other descriptions matched the morphological description of published worked.
