The large specimen was weird. I would’ve thought it would be expanded by the time it got so large and heavy; the gills are obscenely exposed from above; ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶l̶o̶o̶k̶s̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶h̶a̶s̶ ̶A̶g̶a̶r̶i̶c̶a̶c̶e̶a̶e̶-̶s̶t̶y̶l̶e̶ ̶p̶i̶g̶m̶e̶n̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶p̶a̶t̶c̶h̶e̶s̶ I am an idiot – recently it was pointed out that the “background” of the “scales” is just large areas where the cap covering was eaten by something. I believe it’s the only fresh-looking mushroom I’ve ever collected that grew mold overnight (pictured). Real wacky.
The small specimen erupted overnight, exposing its gills (pictured). I thought only Amanita did that. Is it a coincidence that both genera are volvate?
