The base or bulb, the nature of the skirt, and several other visual queues can easily separate these.

p.s. Here’s another link…


Went with C. brunneum-

-on account of their shorter stature. Not that that means much, just a gut feeling. I don’t have any experience with Chlorophyllum so I could be wrong. Since I cannot do microscopy yet, is there any differences that I can look for visually to separate them?

why brunneum not rachodes?
