Although Padamsee et al. stated that “Psathyrella echiniceps should be transferred to Lacrymaria” (Mol. Phyl. & Evol. 46 2008) I can find no evidence that the transfer has actually been made. L. echiniceps is not listed in either IndexFungorum or Mycobank.

this is mr lindaw, we found these on sunday, left them to gro a bit, and you see the result. We aren’t familiar with lacrymaria, and at first glance, they look like the cover of aronas book, which is why we thought they were the prince. chocolate brown spore print, as large as 7 inches across when opened, though veiled, the veil is gone with no remnants or ring after it opens. Personally, i thought it was too large to fall into the LBM category, and thought it was larger than the psythralla family. Nice pillow bolete by the way ;) Thanks for any observations on any of our posts. We’re noviceish, been looking for roughly ten years, using the Arona book, and the Audobon field guide as primary references. Still no hen in the chicago burbs yet, though a friend found a couple in the northwest burbs, rockford area.
