This one also has spores not compatible with verna and quite compatible…

with gilbertii. In this case your photographs show the typical ring within the volva…like a bracelet inside a tight sleeve.

I think there is a good chance of this being gilbertii.

Very best,


Thanks Elsa,

This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium.

Oh, that would be wonderful, Elsa.

going to try drying at least one of these, and I’ll send you with the rubescens and any gemmata (if I find another).

Did you have the chance to check the spores? Or to apply KOH to the material?

KOH would turn the surface of the mushroom orange-yellow if the species were A. verna. The spores would be very distinctive if you have gilbertii.

I’d be interested in dried material of either of the species. I have such material from the Atlantic coastal departements of France for comparison.

Very best,
