The photos don’t really do this one justice – This mushroom was huge, at least a foot across.

Used references: The dust hasn’t fully settled on this, and I’m still gathering my list of references, but there’s some question as to whether the basionym Agaricus albissimus Peck is validly published. Current thinking is that Agaricus cerealis Lasch. takes precedence in Europe, and North American species are divided between L. paradoxus (Costantin & L.M. Dufour) Boursier (1925) on conifer duff, and L. laterarius (Peck) Singer and A. H. Smith.
