When mature, an Agaricus bisporus mushroom is called a portobello. Gills are easily visible beneath the cap, and a ring remains on the stipe.
It can be found from spring to autumn in grassy fields most everywhere in the world, but can be confused with the poisonous destroying angel mushroom. Distinguish between the two by the gills: portobellos have dark ruddy brown gills while destroying angels have gills of pure white.
