MEDEL, Rosario; PALESTINA VILLA, Elvia N.  and  MATA, Gerardo. The genus Agaricus (Agaricales, Agaricaceae) in Veracruz: new records. Rev. Mex. Mic [online]. 2015, vol.42, pp.53-63. ISSN 0187-3180.

The current knowledge of the genus Agaricus in the state of Veracruz is presented. They had previously cited 12 species. This work adds five new records for the state, which includes a total of 17 known species. Descriptive data and discussion of the species: Agaricus comtulus, A. semotus, A. subrutilescens, A. phaeolepidotus and A. xanthodermus are provided. All species present in Veracruz belong to six sections: Agaricus, Bivelares, Minores, Sanguinolenti, Spissicaules and Xanthodermatei. Most collections come from the center of the state and it is the cloud forest where they have collected more species. A key to determining sections present in Veracruz is provided.
