Do you think this might be the same mushroom you…

collected on 19 June 2011 and sent to me with the collector’s number 19062011A?

IF SO, then the following data might apply here:

Spores: [20/1/1] 10.0 – 12.0 (-12.5) x (8.2-) 8.5 – 9.5 (-10.0) um, (avg. length = 11.0 um; avg. width = 8.9 um; Q = 1.16 – 1.35; avg Q = 1.24), hyaline, colorless, smooth, thin-walled, amyloid, broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid.

The warts are quite prominent and have a polygonal base. The margin of the cap bears a felted band of volval material. The first plus the spores might suggest A. pyramidifera and the second plus the spores might suggest A. farinosa or A. ananiceps (in the sense of some authors, but not others). All three of these possibilities will require that we find clamps at the bases of basidia.

The Albertells 19062011A can be assigned to subsect. Solitariae.

Hope to have more information later.

R.
