I’ve been thinking for some time my id here was probably mistaken, but wasn’t sure where to go with it. A. gemmata I believe is more a late summer-fall species, and with this ob the phenology at 5500 feet in mid July is more late spring-early summer. However, I don’t know if that is much of a case against gemmata or not. I am wondering if it could possibly be A. alpina for which photos are hard to come by. It fits pretty well from the brief description I have, and for season and habitat.

not aprica…

color wrong (pale yellow is not in the aprica color range), annulus way too prominent, warts are fluffy and look like they can be easily removed.

You’re right. The color in the obs photo is a little off in the wrong direction. It actually was pale yellow, and appeared so on my monitor in Photoshop, but suffered a little in the upload.

I collected it at a fairly high elevation, and it has the features of aprica. Don’t know of anything else that would be more likely.

Shape is right

but they’re completely un-orange. Not even yellow…
