That will give me something else to look for next time I find one of these. I’ll remember to get cross section pictures to you for the next ones that I find.

Thank you,

I’m just wondering if it might be peckiana. This species often has a “false internal limb” of the volva. The stipe context splits near the base (inside the volva) making a recurved scale that encircles the stem base and looks like a volva inside a volva. Kauffman, himself, checked the tissue and confirmed that it was stipe tissue, not volval tissue…if I remember correctly.

Very best,


Already dried it …

Could you post a vertical cross-section of the whole mushroom?
