Can anyone help me with this one.
In UK we do not have any mushrooms labled Silver Dollar. We have large and small white mushrooms called 'Button'. These look like they are probably the same mushroom desribed in the Typebase list as the Silver Dollar. Can anyone confirm this for me?

Button or Silver dollar mushrooms are the most common commercially grown mushrooms. If you find white mushrooms in a supermarket that are not labeled, this is what they are.

This is the typebase entry for them:

I have been told button mushrooms are smaller and the silver dollar mushrooms are the larger ones that have been allowed to grow a little larger (to the size of a silver dollar).  But often it just seems to be where one is located geographically determines what people call white commercial mushrooms.

Thanks C for the clarification.  That is what I thought and that is what I have been buying.

If you happen to find any growing in your garden or nearby park be really careful that they have pink or brown gills, not white as the latter could be deathcaps, and quite true to their name.

Jenny,

I only eat store bought mushrooms.  I would never eat a mushroom from a garden or park in fear of eating a psychotropic mushroom and I am already phycho enough... lol

I am far too trusting in all things, and continually get burned in life. However, being a war survivor (ie G5) I live to fight another day, only slightly learning from the experiences. In the case of mushrooms, my daughter persuaded me to be more careful, and while I don't believe I would ever have eaten a deathcap, perhaps due to my nature it is better to be perspicacious.

Mushrooms are quite confusing. In researching the different types, I ran across this great website:
