When: 2011-03-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I was given the photos and asked to identify, so I had no control over what was photographed/information collected. I was told it was found in a canyon along S-22. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

he sez that this mushroom comes in a variety of colors when young, and only changes to white with age.

whatever it is, it a cool fungus!

the color is totally weird, and may incicate something else entirely. maybe a yellowing secotioid Agaricus species?

That’s kind of what I had considered, but wasn’t sure because of the orange color. Thanks for the input!
