I did dig it up and it did not have a volva. I am pretty sure Douglas got this right, I keep seeing the same two Agaricus growing in this habitat. (semotus and albolutescens)

I would agree

in as far that this is an Agaricus of course but since Stropharia or the like is also possible I refrain from supposing this…as Christian stresses out more information is required

This really looks like an agaricus

…but without more info, probably can’t get to species, so perhaps we should avoid a repeat of the guessing game and associated debacle that happened recently…

Did you dig it out & did it have a volva?
