Fungi Bioblitz- White Dapperling

The White Dapperling mushroom is commonly found throughout mainland Europe, as well as parts of North America. The species tends to be localized, thus they can be found in large groups spread across fields. In 1835, Carlos Vittadini first described the mushroom, giving it the scientific name Agaricus leucothites. However, the name was later transferred to Leucoagaricus leucothites by Solomon P Wasser. Although the species is labelled slightly poisonous by some authorities, the mushroom is still considered edible.
