Observation 66921: Lepiota (Pers.) Gray

Lepiota’s are poorly understood in this country and have never been studied so most go unnamed. So normally I avoid these but when they grow in you own back yard I felt I had little choose but to photograph them. Been found in a urban habitat may indicate the are introduced. Found in grass lawn under guava trees.


Guava fruit are in the background the red droplets on the cap are from there jucie.

I either misread the location or didn’t read it at all. How continent-centric of me.

Hi myxomop,
I was referring to New Zealand lepiota’s I don’t think they have ever been looked at the few that have names are all cosmopolitan species or those that are also present in Australia.
