This Mushroom stains yellow when bruised or handled. It cap is from white to a golden color. Notice the Cogweel shape on veil (Some other Agaricus have this too). Closely related to Agaricus Arvensis (The Horse Mushroom, Grows in Grass) and Agaricus Albolutescens (Stains Amber, shorter, stalkier and grows in the woods too). Edible for most people.

There are a few other yellow staining Agaricus which grow in our forests. Some of the others are much larger and are not all well documented.
