Collection location: Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico [Click for map]
Who: Diego (dbedolla)
Found in my little front yard. I live in a very dry (dessert) region, however we been having constant rain for 3 consecutive days. Yesterday the sun came and in the night I found this specimen.
Smell: Discreet (and pleasant) mushroom odor.
Dog poop (from neighbor dogs) may had been in my yard.
I feel honored that a mushroom appeared in my yard given that here is no region for mushrooms.
I want to know if it can be eaten, or if it is psychoactive, or if it is dangerous as I have a kitten that likes to be exploring outdoors.

Chlorophyllum molybdites = Green spore print
Chlorophyllum molybdites causes digestive upsets in humans but is not fatal.
It might also be Chlorophyllum rachodes. I think it stains red when cut and exposed to air.
Cut the top off, lay it on paper, and see what color the spores are. If green, you have a Chlorophyllum, which is often poisonous. If white spores, then Lepiota.
Looks like it might be Chlorophyllum molybdites or Lepiota rhacoides.
I forgot to comment that the fungus today was more flat shpaed on the head, contrary to more closed or curved as it was yesterday night when I discovered. In the pictures you can see what I mean.
