thanks for looking at my observations and for keeping me on my toes!

My species description

of P. petasatus is

- Pluteus
- big
- white
- maybe some cracking around the cap disc
- especially on wood chips.

It’s a little simplistic but I haven’t seen anything contradicting its utility (would love to see that, though!)

The only definitive thing I can say is that you can link an observation using, e.g., “obs 197196” with underscores on each side. :)

Aaargh! I’m hoping I didn’t make the same mistake twice, Jacob.

Walt corrected an older OB of mine (# 197196) from P. atricapillus to P. petasatus. I didn’t recognize the 2 specimens as the same species. How do you tell them apart? Can you give me any tips so I don’t make the same mistake a third time:=) THNX
