Used references: This doesn’t exactly fit the description of any of the “almost” Leucocoprinus species I looked into, so Lecuocoprinus is simply my best (but admittedly bad) guess. I’ve been very eager to ID this ever since we found the first example in another part of the country demonstrating the same features, the most notable of which is the pulverous, very fragile white warts which a medium gust of wind would probably knock off the caps.

Used references: the determination of one Larry Evans of the Western Montana Mycological Association, in whose company the collection was made, which I heartily most disagree with.

The log shows this created only in the past day or two, but the obs number 8470 is way lower than expected if it’s that recent.

Didn’t notice the date, or obs. number of this one, it is an old obs. isn’t it…

Higher res?

Do you have a higher res. image of this one? Or does your camera take 150k pixel images?
