the closest to pungent/fruity and red staining is Agaricus benesii, which also occurs under conifers, at least in CA.
Whether it occurs in Utah is anyone’s guess!
Almond/anise is the closest of the fragrances you mentioned. Some day I would like to have a handful of different species side by side so that I could compare the fragrances. I always have a hard time describing how an agaricus smells.
is this fruity? almondy? like anise? like bisporus (a “mushroomy” odor)?
if briny it could be bernardii. they also grow in Colorado and turn red with bruising.
darned flies! they have also beat me to many a meal.
Typical Agaricus fragrance, but stronger than most. When I saw the red staining I was hoping to try these, but unfortunately they were full of fungus gnat larva.
Maybe Kerrigan covers this species in his new book? Any day/month now …
