Hiked around in the Evergreen woods with the MES students today and came across this. Shaggy cap and it was still closed. Found on the ground near western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) and big leaf maple (Acer macrophyllm). Sorry my photos are not great of this.
I've found Lepiota procera twice now along the path up into our woods.
Lepiota species. We found this and Lepiota cristata on Saturday, the other species that I thought was a Lepiota was Agaricus placomyces. The gills turned pink when we got it home.
Lepiota is a genus of gilled mushrooms, in the order Agaricales. Though they have white spores, they are related to the familiar brown spored mushrooms of the genus Agaricus. They typically have rings on the stems, which in larger species are detachable and glide up and down the stem. The cap usually has scales: the colours of the cap, gills and scales are important in determining the exact species, as is sometimes the smell.
