Observation 55653: Macrolepiota Singer

When: 2010-10-17

Collection location: Sant Hilari Sacalm, Montseny, Catalonia, Spain [Click for map]

Who: Chris E (Chris E)

No specimen available

Photographed without stipe. Size and scaly stipe typical of M. procera but unusually dark colour of both cap and “scales” on stipe leaves room for doubt. Smell is of warm milk, also similar to M. procera. Very large, chocolate brown scales on cap fell off immediately. Spore print in process.

Identification help required. Is this just a morphological variation?
