I checked out http://www.svims.ca/council/Agari1.htm#n13a

and it fits somehow except that the caps of my specimens were larger then this description and I found more then tow or three in groups of 5 or more,
see also description http://www.svims.ca/council/Agari2.htm#n320a

it fit this description better, especially in cap size http://www.mushroomexpert.com/agaricus_silvicola.html

Did you try the PNW keys? they have 2 of them for Agaricus in BC.

and it seems to fit the description on every thing that I have tried,
two more things that I have not tried yet;
1. KOH applied to cap.
2. I have not measured the spores.

Make sure everything matches:

I see yellow staining on the cap, and a bit of the “cogwheel” pattern.
Did it smell like anise or licorice?

One thing you DON’T want to smell is phenol — sort of like ink.
And finally, realize this isn’t a particularly easy genus …

How can I ID this one?

I think it is Agaricus silvicola but what can I do to verify that?
