arvensis gets that yellow on the cap, but doesn’t show that thick flocculence.
Augustus has a flocculent stipe, but doesn’t have a cap like this. Thank heavens you saved it…hopefully we can get Kerrigan interested. And didn’t you have a spore print up yesterday? Or was that one of those other sightings I scrolled thru…

no shame

The angle of the shot made it hard to see the gill attachment. The contribution of a look-alike name is admirable. It provides a teaching opportunity, a treasure to aspiring teachers.

a shame ….

I didn’t see that the gills are free, but they are definitely. So Agaricus is the only possibility (except an undescribed genus ….)

Clearly Agaricus

Pinkish brown free gills. What else has that conjunction of gill color and attachment? Pluteus maybe, but this is not Pluteus. Stropharia, though a better match for the shaggyness and color of the specimen, would show attached gills.

I watched this specimen grow for a few days, the gills started off more of a pink color and when finally mature were a chocolate brown color, that is why I thought it was an Agaricus species.
