Vellinga, E.C. & R.B. Balsley. Leucoagaricus dacrytus – a new species from New Jersey, U.S.A. Mycotaxon 113: 73–80. 2010.

ABSTRACT: Leucoagaricus dacrytus (Agaricaceae) is described as new from an old-growth Quercus rubra forest in New Jersey, U.S.A. This is a relatively small, brown species exuding golden drops over its surface, with a pileus with cobwebby patches (a cutis-like pileus covering), narrowly clavate cheilocystidia, and oblong-amygdaloid spores. It is close to the European species La. tener, from which it differs in the slightly smaller spores and in nrITS sequences.
