I did have someone from Missouri ID it on another forum as well. I need to get a microscope, haha

Not sure at all!

Like I said, I don’t know the difference. Looks like you do!

I researched this quite a bit. They have come up in two different locations on my property and are always pure white. All S. coronilla I have found are a buff tan to light brown color. Also, S. coronilla tends to come up in grassy areas and this favors areas with DG & wood chips & leaf clutter. These also have the toothlike veil remnants of S. melanosperma
