and rather than a quick hop to Ameri-procera ala Rod and our muscaria, there is more than one species, which complicates things. they are all edible, tho (phew!); a Macrolepiota by any other name would taste as sweet…

Else concurs, Walt…this is an undescribed species.

too bad you weren’t at the foray! I’m sure that nobody else saved it.
