Observation 85042: Agaricus moelleri Wasser

When: 1981-09-23

Collection location: Tustin, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tom (LanLord)

No specimen available

I never completely ID’d these (this was many years ago), at the time they seemed to match A. placomyces with the exception of location.

They were about 2.5" to 3" in diameter with a central flat surface about the size of a US half dollar. They were relatively short and squat looking.

I nibbled on one and felt a bit queasy the rest of the day. I don’t recall any odour or staining of the flesh.

They were growing in babys tear moss near twisted junipers (related to cedar).

No it was

an Olympus OM-1 with (probably) Kodakchrome 25 film in it. That was my usual film, even though it was slow, it was fine grained.

I realize I didn’t answer about the lens, it was a standard 50mm lens that came with the OM-1.
