Unfortunately, this critter did not make it through the mails. Apparently it wasn’t completely dry when it was placed in its bag and arrived a bit mushy with a few critters living on it. We decided it was a threat to herbarium security.:)
There was a second lepidella (daucipes) that we’re trying to redry, but we may have lost that one also. It would probably be a good idea to cut large lepidella stems vertically twice (into quarters) and the caps into six or eight pie shapes. Bulbs and cap context can hold water while they appear dry on the surface.
I’ve five other samples from Hawn in the dryer, I’ll send them to you some time tomorrow.
I didn’t see any bruising on this one. Not much of a smell to it, either.
That, plus yellow volval material on the cap edge and on the underside of the partial veil, and the white color of the rest of the basidiome suggests to me A. rubescens var. alba Coker. I have seen that species with the underside of the Partial veil completely yellow…and the same can be seen occasionally in what appears to be “A. amerirubescens.”
