Reddening Lepiota?

Recommended Posts

Are these caps all over two inches wide? One thing to be aware of is that some small species of Lepiota are dangerously toxic. The ocher-yellow bruising ion the gills matches Leucoagaricus americanus ("Reddening Lepiota" is a speciesΒ no longer housed in genus Lepiota). If you rub or slice the stalk do you see a similar yellowish stain? Bruising on L. americanus mushrooms should slowly change to a reddish-brown.Β 

L. americanus generally grows where there is old wood, chips, or woody debris. I have never seen it growing on a lawn.Β
