When: 2010-12-21

Collection location: San Mateo, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tom (LanLord)

No specimen available

I can certainly see why these things are mistaken for death caps and vice-versa.

These had grey streaked caps, white gills (on the young ones) and a large voluminous volva.

However, the lack of a ring on any examples and pinkish gills in age along with no mycorrhizial hosts nearby pretty much makes Volvariella a given.
