Duplicates, indeed.

Igor, you are so right. This was the date of a ‘Good Mushroom, Bad Mushroom’ class field trip. My guess is that a few fungi got passed around to multiple parties, as the same appears true for multiple Phallus ravenellii & Suillus obsies at the same location.

This should not happen next year when this course is offered again at Plymouth State.

I think this is the duplicate of obs 299379 and obs 301538. All three are from the same date and location, and it looks like the same fruitbody. Langdon Park abuts Plymouth State University.

I agree that this is a species of section Caesareae.

Given the locality of the collection site and the robust nature of the volval sack and the cap coloration, I think murrilliana is likely. The marginal striations are probably too long for this to be A. spreta.

Interesting collection.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
