_frostiana was everywhere this time last year in central MA-southern NH. but I haven’t see it this year, LOTS of flavoconia though

Thanks Noah.

The cap striations did sorta jump out at me. Aside from maybe a little old age bumpiness on the margin, I don’t see this in flavoconia. One thing is this… around my neck of the woods flavoconia is so common that one seriously does not have time to examine most of them. So it may be that I pass by a frostiana from time to time without noticing.

Nice.

Is it the cap striations or the overall vivid yellow that sets this one apart from flavoconia?
