Observation 180251: Lepiota cortinarius J.E. Lange

When: 2014-09-20

Collection location: Dogtown, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

These large specimens (up to nearly 5 inch diameter) look much different from the small pale Lepiotas I find in my yard, and which have been IDed as L. clypeolaria, obs 178093 .

I did not get spore measurements form this collection. But the lengths appear to fall well short of the what is reported for L. clypeolaria . Compare with obs 178093 .

Spores collected from a print.
