When: 2008-08-05

Notes: I found this mushroom on the edge of a park service road. It grew bent over due to a tire indentation right next to it.

You can see a bit of the vulva peeking out in the third photo.

mature sinicoflava

In a mature fruiting body like this in A. sinicoflava, the universal veil would be expected to be largely gray and crumbling, and the gills would be turning sordid. In general, I think that caps have too much red in them, also.

Very best,

R
