Description: Original observation #136811 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: Growing on the ground in the Big Sandy Creek Unit. Caps up to 3 cm across. Spore print deep purple. Spores ~ 4.3-5.0 X 3.7-4.0 microns, smooth. Have seen these before but only older specimens. They are much more impressive when young and the yellow scales dominate. Spore color seems unusual for an Agaricus but spore shape is more typical.
