for this mushroom seem long for rooseveltensis. But most are broadly ellipsoid, which fits this species. Cap color paler, less gray than ones currently understood as rooseveltensis. Found in same location as obs 170995.

It should be ready today. Obs 100142 will also so available, along with other material that believe is the same type (from the same exact spot, previously posted). Everythig will get sent in one mailing this fall. But if there’s something that you’d like to see sooner, Rod, let me know and I’ll put it into the mail.

Very interesting and not familiar to me.

Nice shots. I agree about the spore shape.

Dave, I’d like to take a look at this one sometime.

as where I have found hundreds of “Vaginatae old species #17.” But the cap color is lighter on this one. And the stipe base was buried only up to the rim of the volval sac. Spores are fairly elongate for Vaginatae types. I believe I have found this type in the past, in the same location; but not commonly.
