Edible
Agaricus silvicola (Vitt.) Peck. Wood Mushroom, Agaric des bois, D?nnfleischiger Anisegerling, Agarico di boschi, Slanke anijchamignon, Karcs? csiperke. Cap: 5 - 10cm across, convex, cream, readily bruising ochraceous and becoming more yellow with age. Hymenium is free ( cap is convex or flat ). Stem: 50 - 80 x 10 - 15mm, concolorous with the cap, base usually bulbous. Stipe: has a ring. Ring: large and pendulous, upper surface white, lower drab. Flesh: thin, white. Taste: mushroomy, smell of aniseed. Gills: free, pale greyish-pink at first later chocolate brown. Smell: Aniseed. Cheilocystidia numerous, thin-walled, oval to subglobose, hyaline, 10 - 20 x 7 - 20. Spore print purple-brown. Spores ellipsoid 5-6 x 3-4-. Habitat in coniferous and deciduous woods. Season autumn. Occasional. ---- The cap is light cream, and bruises yellow ochre when damaged. It is much the same colour as the cap, and has a fragile drooping ring. The flesh is thin and white, and smells of aniseed. It looks fairly similar to a young death cap, it is believed by some mycologists. ---- Agaricus silvicola grows in both deciduous and coniferous woodland in Britain, Europe, and North America. Appearing in the autumn, it is rarely seen in huge numbers, usually just a few, or solitary ( Season: August to November ). Often found in loose groups. ---- It is suspected to have caused an allergic reaction in a few people in North America. ---- Agaricus xanthodermus, the yellow stainer looks very alike but bruises chrome yellow when handled or cut and smells of Indian ink or Agaricus pilatianus which stains yellow on cutting and smells of carbolic. Both do not smell edible. People can mistake some of the Amanitas for field mushrooms but on inspection they are quite different.

Agaricus pocillator, a woodland mushroom, is distributed through southeastern North America in ranges a minimum of as far north as Illinois. It will be distinguished within the field by its dark center, its small, bulbous base, that stains yellow, and its relatively slight stature. It's very similar to agaricus placomyces, however is a slightly smaller mushroom with a scalier cap and a more northern range among the united states. Edibility isn't certain for agaricus pocillator, however many other yellow-staining agaricus species ar poisonous. Hikers are typically warned to avoid eating it when spotted. ---- Cap: Whitish to dingy, developing vaguely concentric brown to greyish scales towards the middle. 3-10 cm; Convex to broadly convex or nearly flat in age, sometimes with an obscure, darker bump; Dry; Gills: Free from the stem; Close; White, turning into pink, then brown. Stem: With a small bulbous base that bruises yellow; with a ring that usually persists into maturity; 4 - 8 cm long; 0.5 - 1 cm. thick; Partial veil when covering the gills not developing dark droplets. Flesh: Staining bright yellow in the base; White throughout; Taste: Odor typically unpleasant, however sometimes not distinctive; Taste not distinctive or somewhat unpleasant. Spores: 4.5 - 6 x 3 - 3.8 ยต. Chem. Reacti.: Flesh and cap yellow with KOH. Ecology: They are saprobic, meaning that they survive by decomposing dead or decaying organic material. Growing alone or gregariously beneath hardwoods and in mixed woods; Saprobic; Summer and fall.
