I would very much like to see this material.

Very best,


No, it was too deep Dr. T. I have the mushroom for you, if you want it. Jon

This seems like it is something unusual.

A yellowish ring on the stem and yellow volva fragments would suggest sect. Validae (as an example); however, these taxa should not have long marginal striations on the cap.

Were you able to get all the way down to the bottom of the stem?

Very best,
