I mentioned the observation to Else, and she wrote back “that is typical Leucoagaricus barssii – it tends to be early – in other words it fruits in drier periods than the other species.”

I think of that species being grayer, but it made sense after she mentioned it.

Interesting Leucoagaricus

The cap surface is different enough that, like you, I wouldn’t call it L. leucothites. If you see it again, it would be worth drying. I’m sure Else Vellinga would be interested in looking at it.
