They’re both in the Agaricaceae, and along with your other photos it’s easy to fill in the gap to make a nice, smooth morphological (if not necessarily evolutionarily accurate) transition from Agaricus to Melanophyllum to Cystolepiota to _Lepiotoid taxa

Ah. Likely. Too bad no one has a confident species name yet. If you saved some of these collections, I bet Else Vellinga might be interested in looking at them.

Damn. The gills don’t look like Melanophyllum, though the immature gills can be pale. However, Cystolepiota are cool too…

Whoah wait white gills

unless it’s a funky unripe Melanophyllum (I think they have at least pinkish-red gills from the start) I have to consider Cystolepiota more likely.

With something like this, you should try breaking the partial veil after you got your pictorial shots. I figure you probably have a few more angles of this, so post those. It’d be cool if this had bright red gills.

Would need a gill shot
