Agaricus xanthodermus (or is it A. flavescens?) Must be studied. The squamules on the cap were not distinctly yellow, though the surface appeared suffused with that color, exactly as in A. arvensis. Secondary ring present on the lower surface of the other. It was split, as shown. Gills a little brighter pink than in A. arvensis. The plant was already somewhat old when I received it. The interior of the stem was completely riddled by larvae.
