Agaricus is a genus containing over 300 species of both edible and poisonous mushrooms globally. They produce characteristic fleshy caps atop an upright stem with gills underneath that produce brown spores for reproduction. The stem features a partial veil covering the gills whilst they develop, which ruptures and forms a visible raised ring around the stem. The common button and field mushrooms widely cultivated for human consumption are in this genus, alongside deadly poisonous species such as Agaricus aurantioviolaceus.
