I never knew…

A somewhat similar species (also commonly devoured by squirrels)… EDITED

is the one that David W. calls “Rod’s old number 17.” We really need a name for that one, and we’re working on understanding whether it is really just one or more taxa.

One character of this species or group of species is that the spores are ellipsoid rather than globose to subglobose. Many species of section Vaginatae (including the European A. vaginata) produce globose to subglobose spores.

Very best,

Rod
