I’m sorry it started to go on you like that.
They’ll be another one.
Thanks for your reply.
I brought the mature specimen home and it stank up my place so bad I chose to discard it. I still have a small piece of the cap but haven’t found the time (or my scope) to take a look. I lack a stage micrometer anyhow. I need better equipment…
Did you make any spore measurements on this collection?
very like bisporigera, but not reactive to KOH. We had a surprise of running into such a specimen at NEMF this year and it followed me home.
Whether these entities are “unusual” specimens of bisporigera or are something distinct is unknown. I am just sending off a set of KOH+ and a second set of KOH- specimens to see if there is a detectible difference from a molecular point of view. I hope to hear back in the not too distant future. If you don’t hear from me by October, bug me.
I’ll make some time as I’m quite curious to the identity of this entity.
A few notes: The volva which I described as “felty” and thick turned thinner while drying. I think a better description would be thickly membranous. The reddish stains I observed on the volva when I took the pics is absent now and the gills have turned yellowish on drying.
I think it could be elliptosperma.
Do you have time to report on the spores?
was thin a membranous. It was collapsed on the mature specimen and intact on the young one. White above and below. The base was pinched off without much taper. Same spot as ob
I think it’s the same whatever it is…
I have the material.
Atkinson collected A. elliptosperma near Ithaca; so that species should be found in your area. It has an upstanding volva and weak or no reaction to KOH.
What was the bottom of the bulb like in your material?
