Agrocybe molesta --- Crack-cap Agaric


Crack-cap Agaric Agrocybe molesta is sometimes found in woodland but more commonly in grassland.  The Blog, July 2015 shows the find from the same fixed dune area at Pembrey but then, the expanding cap had torn the gill attachment to the stem forming a 'false' ring.  The earliest records on FRDBI are from the 1790's and, as it is so widespread, it is surprising that there are only 400 records.
