by A.H. Smith and others. The holotypes of two varieties (achloes & americanus) are Michigan collections. However it is apparently not common.

Anymore Info On This Specimen? Rare Occurance in Michigan?

Anymore information of this mushroom when it was collected? And was this just a rare occasion to find them in Michigan, or can they be found there if your looking for them?
