Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

Area with mature white pine. I didn’t check closely, but I believe this area has no oak.

Not much staining on the volvas. Just a few small isolated brown dots.

The two mushrooms seen here were growing about 18 inches from one another. The small one is preserved.


covering over gills is dried “snail slime”.

When I saw the cap color, the first thing I looked for was spotting on the universal veil; then, I saw your notes on that subject. The cap colors do suggest the “fulva” group. The unspotted u.v. would be a little unusual in that case. It will be interesting to see the dried material.

Very best,
