I do have melzers here

I am not sure that these are all the same species. They were from all over the table, I put them together because they looked like they were the same. I didn’t apply melzers and the mushrooms are gone now.

Interesting…

The immature specimen has a deep brown cap. There is a distinct parital veil. This suggests that we are not looking at a species with strong similarities to the white or whitish taxa of sect. Amidella that are mostly exannulate. I guess it is very difficult to have Melzer’s reagent on hand in a long trip around Mexico, but I wish we knew more about the amyloidity of the spores here. This is a very interesting collection. Are you convinced that the specimens are all from a single species?
