Description: Original observation #64945 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: Growing under Cypress. Odour is "mushroomy". All areas stain pink where scraped, and turn faintly yellow in 10% KOH... This combination of colour reactions is only supposed to occur with A. arorae according to Fred Stevens California Agaricus Key , and this is clearly not that, so I am not sure what this is.
Disposition: vouchered
