The A. erebia

I have found occurs in the forest, on/nearby wood. Specimens I have collected had dry caps, but the weather may be an influence. I agree that the ring type is unusual for an Agrocybe. First time I found one of these I thought it was a Stropharia. But the spore print was the dull cigar brown type which supported Agrocybe. My collections have keyed out very well as per B/B/F.

I think it is the flared upward ring that is a problem for me. It could be environmental. This species grows in my lawn and I see it at the Cain Foray in Ontario where it also fruits in a grassy area.

To me, it looks like a Stropharia species.
The sticky cap is atypical for the genus Agrocybe, but typical for
some Stropharia species.

Hey Walt

Check out the discussion here:

I’m fairly certain both observations are the same species. Microscopy pointed toward Agrocybe in the observation from last year.

What makes you think this is an Agrocybe?

You can see a leaf stuck to the top of the cap. This is the only sticky capped Agrocybe I know.

The little white things on the slimy green mat are the same as here:

The little brown agaric is the same as here:

Is a basidiolichen. Not sure what that agaric is…

what I have IDed as A. erebia in the past. Prominent striations on upside of ring. The few times I’ve found this type have been in late Sept Oct.
