I did not find an image of this mushroom in my photos from NEMF 2014.

I’m sorry.


I see that the patch on the cap has become gray.

I can’t be sure whether I got this one or not. with Mary T.’s help, I managed to get at least one reasonable (but not artistic) photo of everything we dried for study.


Rod, hopefully this one found it’s way…

to you at NEMF. I should have drawn your attention to it. These big forays can get pretty hectic.

Interesting how the volva is fairly persistent and white, without any sign of graying along the upper margin.

I snapped several photos, but they mostly didn’t come out. I’ll add the one additional photo that’s reasonably viewable.

This is the palest specimen (cap and stem both) that I’ve yet seen in…

the “rhacopus group.”

This would be very worth examining in detail.

Very best,
