On the MO observation that you mentioned, David, I posted a response.

In that case, we have the spore photograph to demonstrate that the spores are too round for russuloides. I think that praecox is probably more like in that case.


Coincidentally, I brought one home last Sunday

that bears resemblance to Jimmy’s collection seen in this obs.

You’re more than welcome, David.

I appreciate the opportunities MO provides for so many folks to post interesting stuff.


Thanks for the input, Rod.

I see what you mean about the possibility of a limbate basal structure.

The volva on the bulb in this material appears to be limbate….

that is to say, like one or more flaps of material arising from the bulb and collapsed (in the photos) on the base of the stem.

The volva in albocreata is of the “rolled sock” or “ocreate” type. This Georgia material could be “sp-S01.”

Thanks for drying it for me, Jimmy.

We’ll see what we can do with the material.

Very best,
