Collection location: Chesterfield Co., Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Brandon (bsearcey)

No specimen available

Not exactly sure about it being A. pantherina, but looks close. I’m on the East Coast and apparently it is not usually found here. It is growing in hardwood mulch that was just spread this year. I can’t recall ever seeing this mushroom in the yard before. I plan to try my luck in IDing it with Arora tomorrow. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A. amerirubescens?

Thanks for the correction. But to clarify, what is the pinkish-red staining? I have not pulled one yet, so will bruising it show the pinkish-re staining? If it is A. amerirubescens, this is an edible? Thanks again A. virosa.
