Thanks I don’t have MDM with me at the time, relying on my Phone apps and the web… any way, there has not been a whole lot of research on the species in that part of the world (northern BC) so I am not going to give a heavy vote, however what do you think of Agaricus bernardii

not bitorquis…

according to Arora (ATTRPAM), bitorquis gills are only pink PRIOR to the breaking of its veil, and the annulus is sheathing, never skirt-like. Bitorquis can sometimes redden, though only slightly.

Bisporus does have those pretty in pink gills, even after the veil breaks.

Here in the eastern North America, an occasional (somewhat uncommon) springtime Agaricus species is A. bitorquis; often partially buried in the ground nearby a roadway. Flesh in fruit bodies of A. bitorquis is relatively hard.

Prehaps a mixed collection?
