that this observation is the same entity as:




as they were all found along the same short stretch of trail featuring beech and hemlock with pine, oak and more mixed in. I’ve found what I’m sure is A. velatipes and I’m not sure these are it. I’m not sure how much the frequent heavy rains is affecting the morphology. With more moisture present increasing the rate of hydraulic expansion theoretically could change where and how the annulus separates and obviously can erode cap color and other features. These tend to be on the small side of the size range for A. velatipes.

Thanks Christian.

I rather like that proposal. I think the caps are very reminiscent of Russula. I’ve been wanting to call these A. velatipes but the annulus position and cap shape and color and the volva don’t quite line up.
