Do you know, or know of someone who can help identify this mushroom. It is
growing in my back yard, in Mesa AZ, not the best place for mushrooms,
although I do get irrigation. It looks, and smells like a grocery store
button mushroom, except the gills are a dull pink not grey. Cap is about
1.5" to 3" wide, altoghether about 3" to 4" tall, growing in the grass. 4
photos attached.
Are these for the frying pan, or target practice for a fungicide.
Thanks for any help,
