Chlorophyllum rachodes, also know as Shaggy Parasol Lepiota, is smaller than the Parasol Mushroom, Macrolepiota procera, and its stem lacks the snakeskin-like patterning associated with the Parasol. It has a pale grey-brown cap and whitish gem with ring and bulbous base. It grows solitary or scattered on in woods generally, often with conifers.
Initially bun-shaped, then expands and becomes convex. Only rarely do Shaggy Parasols open out completely flat. The colour is pallid buff or grey-brown, decorated with darkish brown fibrous shaggy scales. Gills
white, bruising reddish, free (remote), crowded. Spore print
is white. Stem
whitish, tinged pinkish brown, tapering slightly upwards, base slightly bulbous. The ring is coloured as stem, spreading, double, felty, superior, movable.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very hard to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. We recommend, because of this, that you don't eat wild mushrooms at all, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of the mushrooms listed here.
Although efforts have been made to ensure accuracy on this website, the information may contain errors and omissions and should not be relied upon and be used as any basis for eating any plants or mushrooms.
