I tried to save it and bring it to ACCF but it didn’t last. What I need is a travel size dryer

A picture is worth a thousand words but a specimen is worth a thousand pictures… or something like that.

they do look similar, and they came up under similar dry conditions…

but! the original ID for your Ohio mushroom was never confirmed either, and checking again, the description for flavofuligineus in Arora sez white or pink stipe, turning yellow…

Pluteus flavofuligineus maybe?

Else is just gonna laugh at me when I ask her to ID this from a photo…

We are counting on you “kids” to carry on the proud tradition, but endless conjecture can best be put to rest with an example in hand. And in this “somewhat” obsessive group of taxonomists, we can always find somebody willing to bend their head over a scope…
