Growing in a giant patch of Agrocybe praecox. I photographed these specimens in particular for their unique appearance (phenotype).
They are growing from large masses of wood chips that have been layed on-top of soil. They are in direct sunlight for much of the daytime. The pilei have this appearance because of severe dehydration. They likely underwent dehydration, rehydration, and secondary dehydration due to light rainfall one day this past week.
We should consider the weather (including wind, temperature, humidity, and rainfall amount via weather.com) during spring and summer collections in particular because these growth parameters contribute largely to physical appearance.
