Location: Colorado
Spore Print: White to Yellow
Edibility: Edible
Color: White

Grows on the ground, in grass, near trees.

Edible. Some people may experience gastric upset. When trying these for the first time it is best to sample a small portion. Can be easily confused with the look alike green spored lepiota. See Chlorophyllum molybdites (poisonous). It appears that there are a couple different variations of this species in Colorado. Make a spore print and verify it is white for edibility. You caps have the best flavor.
