the brown material seen near/on the mushrooms represents partial veil. Maybe some other debris…? But, it does seem likely that’s what those brown patches are… veil colored by a spore deposit.

Well it’s certainly not Hypholoma

(look at the spore deposit on the veil.)

This looks a lot more like Cyclocybe cylindracea than Agrocybe acericola to me (chunky stature, broad washes of pigment on the caps), but I’m not super familiar with either. But really doesn’t seem like A. s. s…

Agrocybe acericola, except these caps have color more reddish, and the gills look more like Hypholoma lateritium to me. H. lateritium is thought to be a strictly autumn species here in eastern NA. Last spring I found H. fasciculare (June 6).

What Agrocybe s.s. species looks like this?
