Agaricus are notoriously difficult to identify. Therefore, it was with a large measure of caution that we attempted to identify and welcome Agaricus californicus to the refuge.
We've encountered Agaricus before, but this one really caught our eye as we drove up our old logging road late in October. How could we miss these large clusters of mushrooms with dazzling pink gills in the rain soaked specimens? We immediately went to work in order to identify these newly encountered mushrooms.
