it seems, my dear, that you are a natural!

not a bad guess on the initial species either…it has the general gestalt of a procera, altho location and color are wrong, and I’m sure there are many other reasons that Else could detail far better than I…since she wrote the sp. description and all!

Isn’t MO fun?

Glad to have you on board, and we look forward to your future posts.

noticing that the middle guy’s stem was sort of ‘muddied’, but my hand were dirty and I don’t recall a substantial browning. Wish I had remembered to check that feature. When I first posted I used the name Macrolepiota rhacodes

When handling

did you notice the stem browning after touching? At least one specimen (far left, upper photo) looks like C. brunneum to my eye. This species stains brownish quickly upon handling, especially near the base of the stipe. Also, if a fingernail scratches near the base, there may be a near instantaneous color change.
