-the blackening cap margin, gill edges and wounds on both cap and stem.

But I don’t know H. singeri well enough to tell it apart from the many forms of conica..

It did blacken, but slowly.

By the time I was home the specimen where I scraped the stipe had backened.

The H. conica blackens very quickly. In the photos that depict this species there is no blackening and photo # 66368 show a cut specimen. Surely there would be some blacking in cut specimens. H. conica blackens if you touch them they are some what fragil. So I Don’t think this Is H. Conica.

These are much yellower than any H. conica I’ve ever seen. I don’t notice a great deal of staining either. Perhaps this is a geographical variation?

Early.

Maybe just heavier rainfall this year?
