Prince (Agaricus augustus) (by Sue Labiste/Katherine Elvin)

Mushroom of the Month: June, 2015

Here are the photos of the Prince (Agaricus augustus) near my driveway.

Note: Shaggy stem but no bulb or rings near base.   Also skirt-like veil still adhering a bit to outside edge.  This one has very light colored gills for an Agaricus, though this is typical of this species when young.  When spores mature they will be chocolate brown.  It's sister mushroom was already dark gilled when I picked it the day before yesterday.
