Observation 186951: Agaricus sect. Arvenses (Konrad & Maubl.) Konrad & Maubl.
When: 2014-10-28

Notes: Found these growing near the road in mixed woods.
Odor of anise.
Spore print a dark brown.
Spores ~ 7.0-8.0 × 5.0-5.9 microns, ellipsoid and smooth.
They were mostly white when I picked them and after a couple of days in a moist environment the caps opened and developed some orangy colors.
The smaller spores, somewhat bulbous stems, and orange colors seem to indicate A. smithii.

(Mycotaxon 22;428-432), and A. smithii, the spores on these more closely match the latter. Also, the lower stipe on the A. summensis is supposed to be glabrous, which these are not. A. summensis is compared to A. silvicola.
