I thought I was probably forgetting a country name.

Very best,

The rain did some damage all right.

I think I know where myxomor is coming from. Two taxa have been reported from northern South America and Central America that are yellow to orange and may or may not be asymbiotic species. These both have a floccose stem and cap when they are fresh and undamaged by rain. In one case, the African species A. aureofloccosa was reported from Brazil recently. In the other case, material of A. aureosylvatica has been reported from Mexico to Panama and may exist in the Colombian Andes.

Very best,

Yes, there was heavy rainfall.

As to floccose material, I don´t know.

Is the base of the stem broken away in the last photo?

The strong radial character of the cap surface is quite striking in the close up of the older cap. I assume that there had been a heavy rain. Is that true? Do you think the cap had previously had floccose material or a universal veil of some kind on it?

Very best,

Rod
