Amazing tropical agaricus species, that has apparently made its home in SE N. America.

The partial veil is especially cool. Love the “isabelline scales” on the covered gills (I didn’t know what isabelline meant in the sp. description either, but it’s just a fancy word for yellowish) and the amazingly long skirt. what a distinctive and beautiful Agaricus!
