Notes: An obvious Agaricus species, but is anyone able to key it out to which species?
Found growing directly from a large pile of dung, in the Himalayas at around 2000m above sea level.
Lamellae were unattached and chocolate brown. Initially white, then pink, then brown.
Stipe ~14cm long, 3cm in diameter at the base, 1.5cm at the apex. Fleshy fibrous, hollow, with a large, thick annulus.
Pileus convex, up to ~14cm in diameter, white margin with a lemon yellow centre. Glabrous with apparent veil remnants present.
Spore print color a rich chocolate brown.
They had a Distinct anise scent. Unfortunately I didn’t test them for bruising and by the time i went back to see if they did, they were too far gone.
