When: 2009-10-07

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Specimen available

Oak woods. Spores amyloid. Maybe one of the citrina types? Cap surface lacks the shiny appearance I expect in citrina. Also, difficult to characterize stalk base as collarlike or saclike. Spores sub globose to globose.

Check this one out that just got posted:


I think you may be right about A. citrina … not that prominent
a cup on yours.

Let’s see what Dr. Tulloss says …

I recall now that what really bothered me was the yellow tint seen on the annulus. Seems a little odd for bisporigera.

Gotta know this one, Dave! ;)

I think one of the differences of A. bisporagera from A. citrina is the proportion of the stalk — A. citrina have thinner stalks. No patches on the cap of A. bisporager either. SOME A. citrina also smell like potatos, but it seems not all do.
