On the ground, in the woods.

Agaricus julius is the rocky mountain version of Agaricus augustus. Brown scales on cap with a shaggy stem. It stains yellow on cap when bruised or scratched. Agaricus amicosus stains red while the prince stains yellow. This is one that is not found most years. The bugs like it so much it's typically infested by this stage. This is a beautiful mushroom and once you see it you its one you can't forget. It reminds me of a portabello mushroom but much better.
