One of our Missouri A. jacksonii has a pure yellow stalk, with no orange decoration on it, as this one does. We’ll eventually have some names for all of these variants. http://images.mushroomobserver.org/orig/549799.jpg

jacksonii, banningiana, and possibly one or more undocumented species. Here’s a recent post of mine that I had originally believed to be jacksonii obs 208661 . Rod Tulloss suggested otherwise, based upon the red/yellow bicolor scheme seen on the caps. The ones in this post (210268) look like possibly the same species.

We also get a few less-showy Caesars… spreta (which I actually haven’t IDed but have seen on MO), pachysperma (small, grayish), virginiana (small grayish).
