This page will cover some of the basics for Macrolepiota, the large lepiota.

Due to the large number of look-a-likes, one of which is toxic, we consider this a mushroom that is NOT for beginners.

As with all of these pages, they are NOT intended to be used as a key or diagnostic tool, but a guide of basic identifying characteristics so that you can make informed decisions and easy-access to other, more detailed resources.
