Vulnerable
This toadstool is found in grass on wet lawns, waterlogged playing fields etc. forming mycelial weft on stems and leaves of grasses but not forming mycelial cords. Formerly called Agrocybe temulenta. This species has been 'lumped' with Agrocybe semiorbicularis so older records should be treated with caution.
