When: 2015-09-26

Collection location: Letchworth State Park, Castile, New York, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

Collected at the RAMA foray. For some reason this was IDed as P. atromarginatus though the gill edges are white. The specimen with the fully expanded and lighter-colored cap is probably another species.

I’m relaying on index fungorum about names validity (so does local mushroom society – Slovenia)


Since there is no ‘Species Fungorum synonymy’ link there, it is valid.

As far as I remember wrinkled cap (at some specimens) should be determining factor, as here:

The website in the comment below shows a European species. It does look similar to that of this observation.
At the same time, P. magnus has been deprecated; the new name is P. petasatus. See http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/3395.

I have collected P. petasatus, and it clearly is not the same mushroom.
