A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species has a wide distribution across the globe, although it may have been introduced in southern areas.
With such a wide distribution the population size is suspected to be extremely large.
This species grows in large rings in grassy areas, e.g. meadows, lawns and parks (Sterry 2011).
This species is edible, but resembles some poisonous species (Sterry 2011).
