Our collections are a part of the UBC herbarium. We can speed up accessioning of this particular specimen and you can request it on a loan from the UBC herbarium. UBC contacts are in the first few lines of our profile. Thanks! O.&A. C.
what I would call a “field Agaricus” here in eastern NA. (I say “field Agaricus” because, as I understand the situation, “compestris” is a Euro name with dubious application in NA.) The persistent membranous ring does not fit my concept of the relevant group of species.
I understand that western NA is much different than eastern NA. But I would not expect such a notable deviation in morphology, especially with a grass-loving saprobe.
