Agrocybe praecox?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Agrocybe praecox?

Hi fungi people, I know identifying Agrocybe praecox is almost impossible based on appearance but it would be good to know if I'm at least looking in the right direction?
They are coming up in my garden, on grass and mulch. Much appreciated!

Of the two you mention, I'd be leaning more towards A.praecox, of which your mushrooms do have the general looks. - I'm not overly familiar with them though.

I don't think I've ever seen C.aegerita (Agrocybe aegerita). - But from what I understand, they are far less common, generally growing in dense clusters, and most often found with Poplar.

Regards,

Thank you! I've been watching them grow since the last pictures. I still think they are Agrocybe, either praecox or I've had someone suggest maybe dura. I've tried to take spore print but got nothing visible, probably done it wrong... :?
