Notes: Four specimens growing on a lawn under an old beech tree.
The caps were gray, with a darker umbo in mature specimens. The volva was very friable and crumbled away together with the soil clumps. The older fruitbodies with expanded caps were in great shape, but when I came back to collect them in the afternoon (following an NJMA foray at Stephens State Park), the sun and low humidity had already “fried” the caps.
Older specimen: 12.5 cm tall; expanded cap = ~4.5 cm wide; stipe = 3 mm wide at apex, 7 mm wide at base.
Younger Specimen: 11.5 cm tall; unexpanded cap = ~4 cm wide; stipe = 8×6 mm wide at apex; 9×7 mm wide at base.
Rod, I am sending these to you as well.
