When: 2009-07-09

Collection location: Dothan, Fayette Co., West Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eddee (eddeeee)

No specimen available

Most likely this is A. amerirubescens. It has all the characteristic’s of that but lacking warts. The whole fungi has a reddish color to it and is thin and watery i have found this several times and also i have found A. amerirubescens which is full of warts on the cap and is very robust. The flesh is more solid not so watery.

I’m finding a great amount of variance in this species. This specimen had no warts they where not washed off because this was a new emerger. There hadn’t been any rain until after the pic was taken and most of the others have bruising that is red but this specimen has a light reddish tent to the whole fruiting body. I think this species needs to be broken down into sub species ect.

the warts can wash off, but I agree with you this one seems kinda lanky compared to the A. amerirubescens ive found, I dont know if that matters though.

im sure RET or Debbie can clear this up, they are the experts on this genus.
