There is a distinct grayish tone to the dome shaped cap that I’ve not seen in “castaneogrisea”.

Hi Rod,

The photograph was taken in 2008 when I just started taking an interest in fungi and I didn’t take measurements, sorry. It was growing at the edge of coniferous woodland along with a few Birch and Alder trees.

The cap color of this specimen differs considerably from the range of tones usually accepted for A. fulva. My experience indicates that the name A. fulva has been used consistently in the U.K. and by continental European mycologists including Dr. C. Bas, my mentor. The Western Hemisphere taxa referred to fulva appear to be a diverse group of taxa, of which, at least two now have names: A. fuligineodisca and A. sinicoflava.

Can you tell us the size of the material you photographed for this observation?

Very best,
