Observation 59479: Agaricus xanthodermus Genev.
When: 2010-11-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Not associated with any trees or woods, but the partial veil seems very cottony.

There was some yellowing on the cap margin, little or none on the base of the stipe. The odour wasn’t particularly inky, but not pleasant either.

I’m not opposed to calling them xanthoderma, I just thought the

too pale for A. hondensis, which should have stronger tawny scales. My guess is closer to A. xanthodermus
