Hi Joshua. We just published a paper on A. solidipes, an older name for A. ostoyae. See http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/sep2008.html

Nomeclature and taxonomy are fun!

Is this a more appropriate name for ostoyae?

not A. mellea

I’m pretty sure this is not A. mellea, which has a smmooth cap without scales or fibrils. However, I don’t know what it is. Possibilities are A. solidipes (= A. ostoyae), A. gemina or A. sinapina.

Hard to tell without doing mating studies of the basidiospores.
