Good point on the base of stipe difference between A. ocreata and A. novinupta. Registered.D.
if it has a membranous sac, it’s an ocreata. novinupta often has no visible UV at its base at all, and when it does it is a suggestion of a close cup….more like a panther than an ocreata.
coincidentally, I just photographed a big beautiful patch of novinupta…MO posting to follow.
I’m positive of the ID. They fruit on campus, where I work and at least three times they are on MO from the same location.
I think I see some reddish tinges on the stipe and annulus. I have seen very similar such aged material in our Live Oak patches and it turned to be A. novinupta.D.
if they are a regular occurence, PLEASE collect and voucher the next one(s)! the brown staining on the stipe is also unusual. an ocreata, sliced in half, usually shows chambers in the stipe. not entirely convinced that ocreata is what you have here…
