On moss covered ground under balsam fir in mixed woods. Cap is bright lemon yellow, 35 mm, convex, slight orange blush in center, no warts. Gills are white and close. Stem is white with whitish superior ring, yellow universal veil remnants at top of bulb, under ring and in soil. Measurements of stem are difficult given the curve of the stem but the width appears to broader than described in the reference materials at 12 mm.


Cap and universal veil fragments are brighter lemon yellow and less orange than they appear in this photo.

Maine was one of the first places that I appreciated that this species was distinct from A. flavoconia. It’s nice to see recent material from Maine.
