I saw this last year in nearly the same place, cap surface yellow broken patches, moist. fuzzy stipe and margin, gills at margin crinkled in same way as Macrolepiota prominens.

Thanks so much. I have seen this two years running. Now that I have a microscope, I should be able to get an answer on the ID. I will check the spores!


probably L. clypeolaria, but spore details needed

The colours of the pileus are much more typical for L. clypeolaria than for L. magnispora (which has a dark centre). But, the spores really tell them apart much easier: with a belly and a straight back in L. magnispora, and a rounded back in L. clypeolaria.
