for your comments and proposals. Whatever the species name you have no idea how great it was to be outdoors at last and finding something so great looking. It’s been hard finding a dry moment to look for fungi anywhere in this area.

I added a correction to the previous comment.

The first image shows pink bruising in a depression in the stem…. EDITED

maybe a slug’s breakfast spot.

From the cap color, we can exclude rubescens var. alba.

Some of the rubescent taxa other than A. flavorubens have volval warts that are yellow at first.

Yesterday, I posted on MO, a list of names and temporary codes (on the WAO website) that include all the genetically segregatable rubescent species that we have found [EDIT—>] east of the Rockies.

I think I have to point to that list with regard to the present mushroom.

If I am wrong about the pink reaction, or if no substantial staining follows the pink reaction (I don’t see any reaction in the stipe except decay in larva tunnels), then this could be one of the yellow brown taxa with yellow volva that do not seem to belong with the rubescent taxa. As an example of these, you could check this:


Very best,
