Who knows…

Without doubt, Mexico is biologically rich, but it’s not like it’s a completely different planet. Even places deeper in Central America feel distinctly similar to the Eastern U.S.

Especially in places like Veracruz and Oaxaca, Puebla, etc. that have oak and pine.

I’m not saying that there aren’t species there that are totally off our radars (and this might be one of them).

I know of none, but that’s what comes to mind when I look at the mushrooms. It’s still my first guess until some micro-characters are added. After all, who knows what’s in Mexico?

Inocybe with a membranous ring?

Can’t immediately think of any – is there an example of that that I’ve missed?

Hard to tell there… Not sure that it’s a Leucoagaricus (gills look too dark, not distinclty freee, and something about the stipe seems off, not to mention that weird cap texture).

On wood by any chance? A bizarre Armillaria? An equally weird Agrocybe?
