are the ones with the reticulate caps..I wonder if there are differences between them and the smooth caped ones other then the reticulate cap?

The mushrooms stay pretty much the same. It’s our ever changing attempt to categorize them that creates confusion. I have had many names that I really liked such as Pleurotus abscondens (which usually fruits inside hollow logs where it absconds) and Cyclomyces greenei. What a great genus name!

It does sound like a color, like something you would find in a really big box of crayons.

Great photos BTW!

vitellinus always sounded so sunny…like the color of the shroom.
