Recognized by sight: I ate the specimen after spore printing. Found in a grassy area near a garden, extremely large in size. Print was brown and compared with foes found across the street in a field. A specimen of this size was delicious fresh. Very refreshing mushroomy taste.

Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

with lots of compost

I thought it was a subbalteatus but it printed brown.

I have seen P. foenisecii get quite large. Based on the photo, it could easily be that.

The colours and characters look right… Just over sized.

I just need a 28 sided purple chrystal from the future.
