now that you mention it, I remember mentally noting the yellow base, but I forgot to point it out when posting. Thanks.

The yellow staining stipe base. Increased my confidence on the ID.

According to a neighbor of yours, they occur in your neck of the woods.


I have only seen them at this one flush. The membrane over the gills seemed unusual, but maybe it happens often in Agaricus….,

…and Walt does not sound too sure of the identity.

I haven’t…

I haven’t seen Agaricus with caps like these before.
