This could very well be something like the “long lost” Leucoagaricus marginatus… It hasn’t been seen around here since published by Mrs. Burlingham in the early 1900’s! It does bare some resemblance to littoralis but definitely send some to Else!

Leucoagaricus littoralis looks alriiiight… I considered the species while browsing through photos of Leucoagaricus last night, but with potential variation in species and lack of names to fit all the undescribed species, I’d hesitate to pin down a name.

Alan, if you still have them, you should check them out under the ’scope. I bet Else might be interested (as I think Debbie was hinting).

so didja save ’em? I know a gal who would be interested…

These are kinda weird, not that I’m a big Leucoagaricus/Lepiota type of guy…

You should just quickly pop them under the scope and see that they at least have dextrinoid spores.
