Well, identifying a Limacella to genus microscopically is not a big deal.

Then when that issue is resolved, we can proceed to the next level.

Thanks for your response.

Very best,

Ahhh, I thought they were supposed to be. Thanks. Having found both observations, I’m 99% sure they’re both Limacella.

My excellent specimen of the gorgeous other one rotted in its bag… The ONE agaric specimen I’ve had rot this way was, of course, one of my coolest collections ever. >_< I still have the ones in this obs though.

If you would like, I can examine this material to see if it is a Limacella.

Being in the same place in which you have found another Limacella could be an argument that you are seeing the same thing. On the other hand, Limacella species are apparently not mycorrhizal; so there would probably not be a direct connection with the tree in the role of host.

Very best,
