Observation 19094: Agaricus L.
When: 2009-02-28
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Small cluster scattered in leaves of lenga forest; CAP around 4 cm, dry, fibrillose with appressed fibrils; GILLS free(!?); STIPE whitish but with cinnamon stains, white-cottony texture, rhizomorphs attaching tons of leaf litter to base, solid to slightly hollow in bottom half, flesh white but staining cinnamon near base; VEIL pale cortina, evanescent; SPORE print failed — couldn’t see print on white paper if any spores dropped, nor could I see any spores on the gills at 20x, nor anything on the stipe; OTHER faint but distinctive almond odor. With free gills the spore print must be white, right? But those brownish gills??…

Haha! Didn’t consider Agaricus. But it really looks nothing like an Agaricus to me — gills are never pink (I have specimens in every stage of development in the photos), the veil is a cortina not membranous, the stature feels wrong, …

I guess Coprinus has free gills, too, come to think of it, but obviously not it either.

Free gills & dark spores → Agaricus
