Several species of the Vaginatae

have the characteristic of rusty staining in spots or larger areas on the exterior of the volval sack. This volva looks pretty much unstained to me. I think I have seen material something like this in eastern Texas, in the Gulf Coast states, and on a foray in Missouri a couple of years back.

I suggest looking for somewhat similar species on the “East Texas” checklist on WAO:


This specimen looks very nice; if it could be dried quickly, we’d like to examine it if you don’t mind sending another packet. Drying the gills quickly, but not getting them too hot, is critical for specimens of the Vaginatae.

Very best,

staining red? Thought it was vaginoid (vaginate?) given the look of the cap, lack of annulus, and saccate volva but the staining could mean something else?
