Two similar specimens found of slightly different physical appearances. The less mature is loaded here on this file and I will load the 2nd specimen on the next available observation. The first specimen was found growing in a shaded open leaf covered area in soil. The soil dropped away from the base easily when touched. There are some unusual aspects in both specimens found. This specimen was the larger of the two in base, stipe and Cap sizes. (but not as mature.).

You are becoming immersed even further in mycology.

My best wishes to you as always.


Dried Specimens.

Rod, The dryer is so much better than I expected. Was using a home made one that fell short of the mark for drying properly. It was causing me some grief. Thanks for putting me onto the Vegi drier. I have two Full well dried specimens available. 163877 and 878.
I am posting today to Christian Scharz and Richard Kneal. Let me know if you would like the specimens. (no commitments). My stage calibration slide arrived today.
Kind Regards , kk

That’s a very interesting construction on the stem.

It’s like wearing a one-legged bloomer under the skirt. The lower margin of the bloomer is quite complex. It looks as though the edge (at least) has multiple layers. Can’t see I’ve ever seen anything like this.

Very best,



Hi , Yes I thought so too but I have been asked to enter finds individually when not absolutely certain they are the same. These specimens were about 50feet apart in different habitats. They physically look alike except for measurements and some colouring. I wasn’t totally sure they were exactly the same. So………..but the obs 161319 these were huge in comparison to 163877 and 163878. and their colouring didn’t match. Also the stipe in 163878 (image _1D73493 had some unusual additional artifacts showing between the base and the veil.??? So again still not sure if they are the same/. Chow kk

same sp. as
