Collection location: Moss Beach, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Peter G Werner (pgwerner)

No specimen available

Initial staining reaction bright red throughout stipe when handled.

Found near edible Agaricus. I initially thought it was Agaricus fuscofibrillosus based on the bright red staining, but due to the unchanging white gills, now think it might be something in Lepiota.

Glad I thought twice about eating it!
