warts are not (yet?) typical of ravenelii…

The warts don’t have (or haven’t yet developed) the typical eroded surfaces seen on A. ravenelii warts. The staining in the longitudinal spliting on the bulb is dramatic and more brilliant than the sort of staining usually seen in sect. Lepidella. Very interesting specimens.
