Recognized by sight
Based on microscopic features: new information: measured spores and came up with 11.5 -14 × 8 -10 (11) um
The spores are wider than the literature suggests for A. subcokeri, so now I’m having second thoughts…

I want to thank you and the folks on the forays with you for posting interesting stuff, your generosity, and your courtesy.

Good going all around.

Hmmmm…back to the drawing board on this one. These come back in the same general location every year. I’ll have to spend some more time in the future getting to know these guys a little better.

Large, easily removed warts are not typical of A. subcokeri.
