Observation 8842: Agaricus californicus Peck
When: 2008-08-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were probably found on August 4th and languished in my refrigerator for a few days. The scales were barely tan when found and the gills were pinkish. During confinement the scales became dark brown. The margin is fibrillose and overhangs the gills which have now turned tan. The annulus is skirt-like with striation at the top. No yellow on pileus or stipe when bruised or cut but the stipe definitely smells like phenol. Fruiting in lawn. Pileus was 5.5 cm across and the stipe 1 cm at apex. I’m guessing this might be A. xanthodermus that spent too much time in dry heat, but welcome suggestions to the contrary.
