Notes: Leucogaster has gel-filled chambers in the gleba, which should be visible here in cross-section. When mature this can have an intense aroma of dried sweet coconut, which tends to make one want to eat it immediately. I often find this partially eaten, drying, on top of a log above 3,000 feet elevation. Small mammals are apparently quite fond of it, and I am willing to let them do the work. This collection may be L. rubescens: the peridium is still too young to be positive, but there is no indication of yellow or yellow-staining on the peridium or in the gleba near the peridium. So L. rubescens would be an informed guess – but only a guess.
