Agaricus Macrosporus?

Looks pretty much like it to me, but I've never come across the variety before. Any other suggestions?

Thanks, as always.

Looks very, very like it; doesn't look like any of the other agaricus to me.

We're meant to call it Agaricus urinascens now.

Smells of wee?

I never thought so Smile

Roger Phillips got a few things wrong in his first edition. And a few other things have been changed, and a few more clarified; one casualty is A. macrosporus, which has reverted to an older name (I believe).

In homage to it's new name I braised it with some pigs kidney. Cool a little leftover onion gravy spiced up with cayenne and ate on toast in front of the laptop as a supper dish. Superb.

It'd be 'born from wee', rather than smelling of it.

Actually, nascens might be 'giving birth to', let us know if you wake up in a wet patch.
Jonnyboy

Yeah, I'll be rushing to let the general public know.
sean

Just put a post up advising against eating them. No-one will ever know....

They just need a little spin 'Now with added warming bonus'

Nice dish mind.

They're yummy.
