When: 2013-06-12

Collection location: Big Thicket, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

Growing on the ground in the Big Sandy Creek Unit.
Cap 4 cm across and fragile.
Could not get a spore print but extracted a few from dried gill.
They did not appear to be dextrinoid.
Spores ~ 9 X 5 microns, elongate and smooth.
This one is probably the same as MO#95734.
It does match the description and picture in Weber and Smith’s “A Field Guide to Southern Mushrooms” fairly well, but haven’t been able to find much other info on this species.
