Agaricus fuscofibrillosus



Cortinarius husseyiKey to Gilled Mushrooms     Key
This is a key to gilled mushrooms, that is, mushrooms having a definite cap with a fertile surface consisting of gills. The fruiting body usually also has a stem, although that may be lateral or absent (usually, then, the mushroom is growing from wood). You can use this key to identify mushrooms that you find.



TricholomaAgaricales     Order
Fruiting body containing fibers (usually in the stalk)



Agaricus campestrisAgaricus     Genus
Gills free
Spore print chocolate brown
Annulus almost always present, usually membranous
The gills are usually pink or silvery-grey at first, but are colored chocolate brown at maturity from the developing spores
The cap and stalk are usually some sort of white or greyish brown, but may have fibrils or scales that are darker (like the portobello)
Growing on the ground, wood chips, or other organic debris



Agaricus sang1Sanguinolenti     Section
Flesh stains red when bruised or in age. No color reaction with KOH


Agaricus sang1Fibrillose Sanguinolenti     SubSection
Cap fibrillose, sometimes clumping together in tufts, as in the photo
Usually flattened at the disk - - that is, the cap is completely flat in maturity, very bluntly conical when young


Agaricus fuscofibrillosus     (F. A. G. J. Mller) Pilt

Comments

The cap dimensions are according to A. E. Bessette, D. W. Fischer & A. R. Bessette (1997) . Arora (1986) gives the cap as up to 5 1/4" across, but he seems to be using a broader species concept.
