Only one was found, hopefully others will be found another time as I can’t get a fit to species.
Habitat – in grassy sandy soil next to pond.
Taste – latex, flesh – none
Latex – clear to cream colored. A small spot (at about 2 minutes from the cap breaking) can be seen in the photo and is a little darker ivory. The brown on the edge of the cap was in place due to some damage of the cap – perhaps a mouse bite. The resulting color is light reddish brown.
Cap – 2 cm, flesh thin, flesh translucent, ivory, edged ruffled due to the primary gill spitting at the edge. Texture is wrinkled, could be due to the hot, dry weather.
Gills – ivory like cap, short gills of varying length, subdistant, decurrent
Stalk – 2 cm – ivory at top, tan at base, narrowing toward the bottom.
Spore Print – scant – light
Spore Size TBD
No Chemical Tests made-
Microfeatures: spores warted
Gill – spore bearing surface have many cystididia, “utriform”, 23 microns long.
