I have to say this has been my favorite find of all. (So Far). And I have plenty of finds for the short amount of time I have been hunting and studying.

Nice, Pete.

It looks like you got one with a distinct double partial veil that was breaking apart just so you could get a nice photograph of the two separate membranous layers.

With all the rain in recent years on the east coast, the bulbs of cokeri and subcokeri seem to be splitting into different patterns. Old pictures (and my antique memory) show rings of recurved scales around the top of the bulb; now we see vertical splits or almost none. Since we old guys have this search pattern or gestalt of the rings of scales locked in our minds, its a bit disconcerting to have to go through the mental process of recognizing the familiar species.

Very best,
