| Chlorophyllum molybdites
|This large mushroom appears in summer and fall, most often in urban areas
like school yards, neighborhood lawns and parks. Very common in the
Midwest. Scaly cap and large ring on smooth stem. NOT edible; poisonous.
The unique green spore print this mushroom produces separate it from
look-a-likes Chlorophyllum rhacodes and Chlorophyllum brunneum, which
have white spore prints. Amanita thiersii grows in the same habitat, but
has a shaggy cap and stem and also has a white spore print.
