Observation 3673: Macrolepiota Singer

When: 2005-09-30

Collection location: Elgin Co., Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Rex (Rex Bartlett)

No specimen available

The “parasol” mushroom. A choice edible held in high regard among mycophagists in my region.
I find these growing scattered in mixed deciduous woods here in S.W. Ontario. They are striking as they reach heights seldom seen in other mushrooms.
