Observation 195107: Volvopluteus gloiocephalus (DC.) Vizzini, Contu & Justo
When: 2014-12-27
Who: hajhouse
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This observation is a generally good fit for the description of Volvopluteus gloiocephalus, in that the volva is present and stipe is bare, gills are white in young individuals maturing to pinkish brown, and pileus is viscose. There is no veil. The spore print is brown - I would call ochre - while Mykoweb and Mushroomexpert.com describe Volvopluteus gloiocephalus’s spores as salmon pink. However, otherwise similar-looking species in Amanita are clearly ruled out by the non-white spores.

The ecology would appear to be saprobic, with mushrooms emerging in grass more than ten meters from any trees, a garden area with bare disturbed soil, and under fruit trees.
