Area that I found them in is easily accessible and I will keep my eye out for another round of fruitbodies- will definitely collect, upload, and dry a specimen if so. Thanks for your feedback!

I wish you had dried this.

A flurry of new taxa are going to be proposed with cap coloring of this sort…orangish or reddish disc with the outer part of the cap distinctly more yellow. This seems to an “in” style of cap pigmentation for __jacksonii_-like taxa from the southeastern U.S. to much of Mexico. Genetic data is collected; however, morphological data has not kept up…yet.

Hope you see this critter again.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
