Apparently it can occur as early as June in CA, in watered areas. Here’s the blurb from Tulloss’ page:

“Solitary to gregarious, often in large numbers and fruiting in arcs, October to March (June in artifically watered, landscaped areas). California: At 140± m elev. In lawns or in grazed pasture or poor exposed soil (e.g., hard clay) in areas completely lacking in trees, often near or mixed with various species of Agaricus (e.g., A. campestris L. : Fr., A. cuprobrunneus (J. Shäffer & Steer) Møller, or A. xanthodermus Genevier) and sometimes mistaken for an Agaricus or in grassy area of cemetery with closest tree Cupressus.”
