I remember Else talking about this being a group of 3 to maybe 5 species and they have to be named. Until then, it should stay as the commonly accepted name.

give Else the specimen and she’ll tell you; not my group.

And those features are? And what are the choices? You can’t just shoot this down without giving some hints on how to go further…

no way to tell w/out the microscopy (according to Else).

All white, thin, radially fibrous cap, small veil, looks right. Is there something wrong here?

Actually there is, the name is spelled wrong, it is Lepiota sequoiarum (the ‘o’ is before the ‘i’).

under pine? how did you make this determination Darv?
