I guess I didn’t search thoroughly enough.
but there is at least one non-bluing Psilocybe species that really belongs there (Psilocybe fuscofulva). I deprecated “Deconica brunneo-albescens” since I couldn’t find a record of it having been published.
delete the connecting “-” and spell it “brunneoalbescens”
No-one was debating the identity of this observation. The discussion so far has been about nomenclature. These were identified in the field by a mycologist and recorded on the foray list. I can’t remember whether a collection was made. It’s hardly relevant anyway. Observational data is certainly not useless, particularly in a place like Australia where phenological and distribution data are very lacking.
on what this could be, if you don’t have a voucher specimen. Nice photos, but totally useless without a herbarium specimen. Adolf
P.S. Even the MO spelling checker considers “herbarium” to be a dirty word!
The last photo I added was taken the next day at another site, but shows the hygrophanous cap drying from the papilla outward. The name of this species is in reference to the brown cap that is often seen with a pale (dry) umbo.
Do you happen to have the entire list of all Deconica or species that should be in Deconica? Or perhaps the Australian list of 20?
that there are a lot. Index fungorum only lists 75 species under Deconica. There are at least 20 Australian species that aren’t on that list and probably many more around the world.
That’s why I created the name Deconica bruneo-albescens and made it the preferred synonym, though I don’t think this species has formally been moved/reassigned.
If there’s no blue coloration and no active alkaloids, Deconica bruneo-albescens should be considered as the name.
