When: 2008-08-29

Collection location: Saint Martins, New Brunswick, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Cap brown, margin lined radially, typically with bits missing showing paler brown flesh. Convex becoming concave and splitting radially in age.

Gills and stem cream; gills slightly descending stem. Stem a bit flaked/scabrous looking.

Up to a bit bigger than my hand. On the ground in Acadian forest. Solitary.

Second photo shows an aged and conspicuous specimen from some distance. The first photo is a close-up of this same specimen. The other four are all of apparently different ages and are separate specimens — I photographed five of these in total.
