Extensive fruitings of this edible Agaricus sp. along a creek. Faint smell of anise. Keyed out macroscopically to silvaticus, but the spores didn’t match up! Species unknown, unless one of y’all has an idea…Andy Methven went through all of the keys and chemical tests, to no avail.

I don’t recall the tree species.
I agree, this looks very much like A. sivaticus, but I don’t see any pine needles in your pictures — Roger Phillips book places this mushroom in a coniferous habitat (Sep.-Oct.), suggesting it is mycorrhizal with pines and/or other conifers. Last year, I myself found several clusters of what I identified as A. silvaticus in the NJ Pine Barrens in early October.
