no immediate color changes. unfortunately, specimens went missing before latent color changes could be assessed.

to ere on the safe side. The continental divide gives me pause in calling a yellow-gilled, Amazonian Lepiota by a European name. Who knows though… maybe microscopy will tell whenever my box of Bolivian wonders shows up.

The texture of the stem. Does not look like any species I am familiar with either.

Why Cystoderma? It doesn’t look much like any species I am familiar with.
