Leucocoprinus americanus has a stalk more shaped like a bowling pin, stalk & cap stain yellow, then turns brick red, gills stain red also. Does not clump as much as L. cepistipes

I have found these in the same place several seasons in a row.They usually have alot more red scales on the cap.Its hard to keep up with the changes in species.
