The mouth area in this specimen is by no means classic G. morganii, but I can live with that. The red color when fresh and the clean mycelial layer with no radiating cracks still leads me to G. Morganii.

This specimen show a fibrillose mouth with a delineated peristome Lloyd describes morganii thusly: “Mouth sulcate, indefinite.”
