Observation 163929: Stropharia rugosoannulata Farl. ex Murrill

When: 2014-04-23

Collection location: Campinhos State Park, Tunas do Paraná, Paraná, Brazil [Click for map]

25.04° 49.0939° 917m

Who: Sergio Monteiro (asergio)

No specimen available

Size of the disk: around 15 cm.It was found in what was originaly Araucaria moist forest. This area was heavily damaged for exploration of wood, but is now in process of recovery. Calcareous soil. A friend told me that it was a wine cap mushroom (Stropharia rugosoannulata), but literature I found says that that species occurs in Europe and North America only. Although wine cap is an edible (and very appreciated) mushroom, I haven’t notice of its introduction in Brazil.

that has expanded its range probably partially due to transport of wood mulch. As far as I know it is was not in any North American Field guide prior to 1970.

Glad you posted this on here…
