Observation 95357: Agrocybe praecox group
When: 2012-05-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat: Park with woodchip trails and tall grass. Agrocybes in their various forms and sizes were growing in the several hundreds.

Regarding cheilocystidia: There were far more sizes and shapes (completely different, as if from a different genus altogether) then I have time to address. The next time an Agrocybe is found by someone, take a careful look at different shaped cells.
