Campestris, Arvensis

A. campestris should have a less lobed cap, a very weak, cottony ring zone flaring upwards on the stem, and a pointed stipe base. Also, as Francois said, it shoudn’t stain yellow.

A. arvensis should have golden-yellow stains, but should not smell phenolic as in A. xanthodermus. My guess is for one of the toxic yellow stainers – A. arvensis does not flare bright yellow in the stipe base according to Arora in MD

Maybe !

Campestris should not have yellow spot when slice . Maybe look for Aversis .

Any smell. ?
