Based on chemical features: The closest BLAST match is Leucoagaricus americanus, but when I put the sequences into a phylogenetic tree, the closest species is actually one that looks like L. meleagris from India.

Phylogenetic tree tells a different story

The closest BLAST match is Leucoagaricus americanus, however when I put the sequences into a phylogenetic tree, the closest species is actually one that looks like L. meleagris, from India. There are three sequences of it in GenBank, so it is probably rather common.

Leucoagaricus meleagris sensu stricto is in a sister clade.

This is different than Leucoagaricus americanus

L. americanus is the closest BLAST match, but this is a much smaller species.

Was the substrate?…

I mean obviously it’s grass haha. I’ve only seen these in woodchips and in a very punky maple stump.
