Agrocybe vervacti

Caps are 2-4 cm across, hemispherical to broadly convex, ochre to orange-brown, dry, and smooth. Stalks are up to 7 cm tall by 8 mm wide, beige to pale orange-brown, slightly roughened, and streaked with darker fibrils. Gills are attached, close, brown. Spore prints are  brown. Common in the Great Lakes region and probably further afield as it is known in Europe.   In Southern Ontario it fruits in grass on lawns in summer. Edibility unknown but I know of no cases of suspected poisoning.
