The first specimen you identified as brunneiniger had a sulphur yellow colored band along the gleba’s outside edge; visible in cross section. I thought this characteristic to be unique because I did not observe it on other fungi I found. Is that sulphur yellow band unique in any way, or is it typical of brunneiniger?
