There are two photos of this mushroom on MO, none on MycoPortal, and one sequence submission on Genbank. It was described by Hesler in 1969. It may be common there, but there appear to be very few recent records online. It might be a good idea to save the next one you find.

the distance from Mingo to the Ozarks isn’t far…

but the elevation might be wrong. We need swampy bottomlands for this guy.

It is collected on a regular basis at Mingo tho, and someone must’ve saved it.

I think those squamules are a bit variable; they are not always appressed. over-all, it fits the description pretty darned well; also, the range is right, and again, it has been seen there before.

it sure looks just like the photo of G. fulvosquam. in the SE mushroom book, too.

Great find!

I hope you are right about finding them again at NAMA.

of course…
