anonymously voted against this being closely related to H. singeri?

The stem

is slippery, though not slimy, as it leaves no residue or stickiness on fingers. The cap became more sticky as it got drier.

I’m sure you have better resources

than I do and I guess it may depend on whether you’re a splitter or not according to Arora. All of my references make a distinction between the two species based in part on sliminess of the stem and distribution.

Stem sliminess isn’t actually a great ID trait for these…

but I don’t remember the source for that.

(Anyway, H. conica is in the singeri group…)

Was stem slimy?

I think blackening longitudinally striated stem is true also of H. conica. Stem of H. singeri is slimy. Also, from what I’ve read the latter is a west coast species to upper great lakes while the former is widespread in NA.


Species suggestion?

The stems have blackening striations.
