Leucoagaricus sp. 2

Common Name: None

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground; Leaf litter

Location: Mixed forest

Spore Color: White

Gill Color: White

Comments: 

I do not know of a good name for this mushroom. As with many Midwestern Lepiotas, there are very few good resources and names available. 

A fairly small mushroom, with reddish tones to the cap. It also stains red when handled. 

Some brief comments from Else Vellinga, a Lepiota expert:

"i would guess Leucoagaricus sect. Piloselli, the reddening species but not anything more definitive than that."
