Observation 12304: Agaricus L.

When: 2008-10-10

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

This might be a very young Amanita. Or, it could be a very young Agaricus. In either case, it’s way too young for me to identify, although the cap surface does have nice fibrilose scales or hairs on it. Visible gills are still white or faintly pinkish.

of the gills suggests Agaricus, but that could be an artifact of the photo. I see some lawn in the background. Collected in grass? That would be the biggest distinguisher between the two.
