Who: Darvin DeShazer (darv)

Specimen available

A very large specimen 13 cm in diameter. Base was golden yellow top of peridium dark reddish brown with some black. Spores 10-13.5 um with short spines and no evidence of reticulations.
After seeing the NAMA Mycophile Vol 48:1, the specimen was reexamined for a microscopic view of the capillitium. The spiny outgrowths comfirmed the genus Mycenastrum. The black coloration was due to growth in an old fire pit.
