Agaricus bisporus (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is an edible basidiomycete mushroom native to grasslands in Europe and North America. It has two color states while immature, white and brown, both of which have various names. When mature, it is known as portobello mushroom, often shortened to just portobello.
The common mushroom has a complicated taxonomic history. It was first described by English botanist Mordecai Cubitt Cooke in his 1871 Handbook of British Fungi, as a variety (var. hortensis) of Agaricus campestris.
