Agaricus silvicola

Common Name: None

Synonyms: None

Substrate: Ground

Location: Forests

Spore Color: Brown

Gill Color: Whitish or pinkish when young, becoming brown with age. 

Time of Year: Late Summer to Early Fall

Comments: 

One of several white Agaricus species that can be found in our hardwood forests. Smooth white cap that is lacking brown granules. The cap also often has a wide nipple on the top.  Rubbing the base of the stem should produce a yellowing reaction. 

Lookalikes: 

Agaricus placomyces and Agaricus pocillator are similar, except both have brown fibers on the surface of the cap. Particularly in the center. Agaricus abruptibulbus will have a bulb at the base. Agaricus arvensis will be found in pasteures.
