Hello, Jacob.

I see that no herbarium specimen of this collection was retained.

If you have a chance to collect and dry material like that depicted on this observation, I would be very interested in examining such a collection. The fact that the volval material is bruising reddish in your photographs while the cap shows no reddening yet suggests to me that you might have something other than A. novinupta. On the other hand, the staining reaction in the San Diego area may be affected by temperature and humidity conditions that are different from those in northern California and the PNW.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
