Similar observation

Here’s another observation I have of a Leucocoprinus with the black center that I labelled L. brebissonii. These were a little smaller in comparison to my current obs.

Staining or bruising

I didn’t notice any staining but only handled these enough to place them in the photo. I’m not aware of any other Leucocoprinus species with the black center but I wouldn’t be surpised if it was something different from what you find on the west coast.

I guess it’s only a little large

for L. brebissonii then..
The habit seems off too, but my experience with that sp. is from collections over 2000mi away from yours. I don’t have a better alternative, however I still dissent.
Is there any other species that this resembles? Was there any staining or bruising?

These were about 3 to 4 inches tall.
