A Felt-ring Agaricus. Supposedly a common mushroom found in the Pacific Northwest in mixed forests. It usually fruits in fall or winter. It is poisonous to &ldquo;most people&ldquo;. Wonder how they determined that?<br />

A Felt-ring Agaricus.

Supposedly a common mushroom found in the Pacific Northwest in mixed forests. It usually fruits in fall or winter. It is poisonous to “most people“. Wonder how they determined that?

''Agaricus hondensis'', commonly known as the felt-ringed agaricus, is a species of fungus in the family Agaricaceae. The species was officially described in 1912 by mycologist William Alphonso Murrill, along with three other ''Agaricus'' species that have since been placed in synonymy with ''A. hondensis''. Found in the Pacific Northwest region of North America, ''A. hondensis'' fruits in the fall under conifers or in mixed forests.

The fungus produces fruit bodies with white to gray-brown.. more
