and yet another genus that I’ve never heard of! ;)

here’s a link to a photo of a reddish Micropsalliota, but no real details, other than that red cap:


hope the finder can provide more info.

spore colour?

I’d like to see the spore colour of this. There are Micropsalliota species with such reddish caps that, when young, look remarkably like a lepiotoid species, but the spores will turn the lamellae brown with age (and drying).

beautiful little agaric!

I agree w/Rod…this looks more like one of the Lepiota species, although it may be a different genus within the parasols as well. The ring in particular looks more lepiota-like than amanita-like.

amanita wasn’t a bad first guess, though: white free gills and all.

I’m not sure that this is an Amanita. [edited]

The poor focus in some parts of the photos make the job a little bit difficult.

The mushroom is a bit like A. rubrovolvata which appears to be present (per a few authors) in northern Indian and in Thailand. But the short gills of the present species seem to be attenuate rather than squarely truncate.

There are several reddish lepiotaceous fungi in North America that have red material around the edge of the annulus; so this is another possibility.
