Meet Agaricus augustus, aka The Prince. Mine is a juvenile, so the cap is rather small compared to that of the adult Agaricus, which has a nice wide umbrella shape. But this is only a baby, so it has a squat baby cap, as it should. According to my Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest guide, Agaricus augustus can be found all along the Pacific Coast and it smells like almonds. Almonds, people, almonds. And guess what? This is yet another edible mushroom! Children everywhere can gnaw on this mushroom specimen (rattle or real) with no fears of psychoactive effects. Yea!
Three down, one to go!
Interested in the other felted mushroom rattles?
