Collection location: Schönbuch, Dettenhausen, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany [Click for map]

Who: Andreas Gminder (mollisia)

Specimen available

Now this is the typical A. battarrae with the darker zone at the end of the striaton and the darker cap center and a lighter zone inbetween the two darker ones. The volva is becoming soon rusty spotted, the gill edge usually is blackish. Growing under Picea on fairly to definitely acid soil.
Attention: The very right fruitbody is another species for comparism: My A. umbrinolutea ss.str.It also has a slightly darker zone at the end of the striation of the cap, but a white volva which is attached at the very base of the stem.
Unfortunately this is a digital picture of a dia, so the quality is quite ugly ….
