We have recieved this material and accessioned it to Rod’s Herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

I agree.

Also, the stipe lacks the grayish ornamentation usually found on the rhacopus types.

Thanks, David.

Because the volva is not graying even though the cap is mature, I’ll guess that there was a small cup left behind somehow and that this is not something in the rhacopus group.

Very best,


I don’t recall these details.

But I think this one was not buried very deeply.

Briefly, again.

Is the bottom of the volval sac still in the ground or is this more like the situation in the rhacopus group?

Very best,
