I have collected solaniolens with yellow volva and even a yellow partial veil.

I called it species N20 for years; however, the two genes that I frequently mention on MO (from several collections with and without yellow volval material and with and without yellow annulus) say there is no genetic difference with regard to solaniolens. Indeed it appears that solaniolens has quite variable cap pigmentation. Possibly the pigment washes out in rain. Some Central American collections have pigment only in the cap’s center. To date, the genes being used, say that all these color variations belong in one species.

Here’s part of the story:

Very best,

Except for the yellow material…

deposited on the lower stipe, this reminds me of A. solaniolens.

Interesting photographs.

The absence of striations on the cap margin, the bulbous base, the yellow volval material, the persistent partial veil combined suggest that this species belongs to sect. Validae.

Very best,

Rod
