Collection location: Big Thicket National Preserve, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Growing in the Big Sandy Creek Unit of the Big Thicket NP.
Spore print blackish brown.
Spores ~ 8.3-10.0 X 7.0-8.9 microns, subglobose to broadly ellipsoid and with reticulations.
I’m tentatively going with S.“dryophilus” because of the browner color of the cap scales and especially because of the spore size which are smaller and more elliptical than what is reported for S. confusus and S. floccopus and which more closely match the reported numbers for S. dryophilus.
