= Agaricus rodmanll Peck
= Agaricus cam pestris var. edulis Vitt.
= Agaricus edulis (Vitt.) Moller and Schaeff.

Linear (longitudinally radial) mycelium of Agaricus bitorquis.

STRAINS: Horst B30 (The first commercial strain to be developed by Gerda Fritsche at the Dutch
Mushroom Research Center in Horst, Holland).
Horst K26, K32 (These are two second generation strains from Horst B30 and are distinctive
from it in that they fruit earlier, give higher yields and have slightly longer stems. Spawn of this
species is now available from Amycel.)

COMMON NAME: Rodman's Agaricus
GREEK ROOT: Agaricus comes from the greek word "agarikon" which scholars believed originated with a Scythian people called Agari who were well versed in the use of medicinal plants and
employed a fungus called "agaricum", probably a polypore in the genus Fomes. The species epithet biforquis means having two rings, for the double annulus that so distinguishes this species from
close relatives like Agaricus campestris, the Meadow Mushroom.
