A. solidipes description

I found description for Agaricus solidipes here (http://www.mykoweb.com/...). And the only things I have noticed being off so far is the distribution (“Vicinity of Denver.”) and the spores are a bit wider then described (“spores ellipsoid, 8-10 × 5-6,μ”). The spores look closer in size then A. campestris or any other similar species I know of yet.

Finally set up to take measurements, I am pretty sure I calibrated it correctly.

Cheilocystidia not found, the spores are smooth and I believe most are ellipsoid to elongate, at least one was cylindric. I measured 32, the measurements being:
