Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

The woods were littered with dozens upon dozens of these growing in pure deciduous woods dominated by oaks, maples, beeches and ashes. If only these were edible, but then I don’t eat wild shrooms anymore. :-) I’ve never seen such a big flush of this species in 11 years. As a matter of fact, I collected my first velatipes at WCSP only last year.
These were small to medium-sized mushrooms with a tacky maze-yellow caps when young, but dry and faded in age, and rolled-sock volvas on top of bulbs. The ring was always there even in older fbs.
