and don’t feel bad, the latin keeps changing on these darned “lepiotas”, thanks in large part to the hard work of our own Else Vellinga.

Both the former Macrolepiota rachodes and the green-spored parasol are now in Chlorophyllum…the trick is in waiting for the spore drop, for those unfamiliar with the very subtle differences between these two species. Chlorophyllum molybdites is prob. quite common in HI, since they are such a fan of warm temps…we are also seeing more of them in the formerly coolish SF Bay Area.
