Location: Forests

Spore Color: Brown

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. 


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.
