Agaricus

Agaricus is a Shire of Lochac, based in the Southern and South West of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The group was initially proposed at a meeting held by the Barony of Rowany in Liverpool on 20 January 1984 (AS 17). The first Seneschal of Agaricus was Marit the Wanderer.

The initial borders of Agaricus have changed many times over the years, splitting off the Shire of Adora, the Canton of Stowe-on-the-Wowlde and the College of St Malachy.
