Notes: > A single specimen found in the Pinelands and presumably growing in mixed oak-pine woods.
> The convex cap is ~5 cm in diameter, with whitish patches of the universal veil. The margin was weakly and shortly striate.
> The narrow and slender stipe was in poor shape, but the annulus was still intact – it was a narrow band of flimsy tissue tightly pressed against / wrapped around the stipe. The bulb was small and very misshapen due to rotting & insect damage.
> The spore print was treated with 5% Lugol’s. A small aliquot was diluted with water. Excess reagent was destroyed by sunlight. The resultant spore suspension in the colorless medium was grayish baby-blue. This constitutes an amyloid reaction, which is consistent with the morphological assignment to sect. Validae
