Description
Tricholoma flavovirens, also known as Edible Yellow Trich has a medium to large cap that is vivid yellow and brown at center. The gills are yellow.

Cap broadly convex or nearly flat, with an inrolled margin at first; expanding to broadly convex or flat, often with a broad, low, central hump. Pale yellow at first, then greenish-yellow to vivid yellow and usually remaining yellow on margin but gradually becoming brown from disk center outward. Flesh thick, firm; white or tinged with yellow under the cuticle. Gills notched around the apex of the stem, close, broad; edges become ragged with age. Stem more or less equal, or enlarged at base; solid or hollowed in age. Surface smooth to fibrillose; pale to light yellow.

Similar species Be sure to distinguish from Tricholoma sulphureum and from Tricholoma sejunctum, both of which are poisonous.
