Thanks for the suggestions, Rod. I actually fell asleep in my office chair last night while uploading the first three pictures, woke up, and forgot about it until this morning. I’ve added more photos, as well as dimensions, and what may be a key feature -a distinct odor of chlorine. Looking at your descriptions, it appears A. cineroconia has this type of odor, but A. tephrea does not.

Very nice pictures, Steve.

Maybe A. "tephrea__" or A. cinereoconia?


Very best,
