Specimen available


The specimen at the top of the picture had a yellowish/orange pileus, just a little orange in the center of it.
These are the three that had brownish/cream colored caps, the collar can be seen well on the one in the middle, my camera died in the field so I had to take pics at home.
The flash kinda washes out the brownish center on these.
I accidentally put my knife through the base of the specimen at the top of the pic trying to dig it up, but you can still see the collar, a little worn down but still there.

The color of the 4 on the left of the pic had yellowish caps, the 3 on the right had more of a creamy white color near the cap margin and a light brown color in the center of it.

is this yellow in your photo a true color, Weiliiiiiii?

I am unaware of any yellow multisquamosa; not familiar with velatipes.

Among the taxa that I know…

I’d suggest that A. multisquamosa Peck and A. velatipes G. F. Atk. are the main possibilities. This, of course, leaves out the possibility that the species is one that I don’t know.
