I think we’re collecting this in Missouri at the moment…

The slightly striate margin is a bit of a puzzle to me; but given the time of year in the US, I think a good bet for this specimen is a very red variant of A. flavoconia. At times I’ve thought that this ought to have a separate name. I haven’t considered the quetion lately. However, we have been in Ha Ha Tonka St. Pk. with the Missouri Mycol. Soc. (MOMS) and have seen a yellow and a bright red variant of A flavoconia rather commonly. With the great support and hospitality of Jay Justice and a dozen MOMS members that braved 104 degr. (F) heat, we have got dried material of both the red and the yellow “extremes”. Funny thing, we got ZERO “normal” orange material!
