The possible taxon is described here:


I have seen something resembling your photos in mixed (hardwood and conifer) forests from Connecticut and New Jersey to South Carolina and Tennessee. Frankly, I’m not sure that it is all one species; but we’re trying to find out. A more recent collection might be very helpful if the older collections yield only fragments of the proposed barcode sequence.

Very best,
