The Honeys are the first type of mushroom…

that I had learned. In my area they are the most popular edible. But I don’t claim to have a very good understanding of how to apply the various species names (which include some of Tom Volk’s numbered species). I’m not sure I’d apply gallica to these, as the partial veils appear to be more membraneous than cortinate.

To me. And I’d call them A. gallica if I found them here, but out there… No clue really.

It’s crazy how complex the development of mushrooms in this genus is. Just add water, poof- whole new morphology.
