but, Danielle had nothing to do with finding, photographing or identifying this species.

Best pic yet of this barely-known Lep s.str.

For this big, delicate, seldom encountered species – all key distinguishing macro features are beautifully caught on film: the typically “pseudomembranous” annulus, well-formed but fragile – the bright orange-red bruising/staining reaction – mesic forest habitat, and neighborhood (Alachua County locale) – all clues add up, all features of this obscure taxon on display (like some overgrown Lepiota cristata wannabee). Not many have apprehended this one. Congratulations to Richard & Danielle for best-ever-shot of – a suspect so elusive it could almost be Scooby Do caper. Mighta gotten away this time too – if not for those meddling kids, with their camera, know-what and rare mushroom ID skills.
