Collection location: Dallas, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

Spores for these two… Specimen C had larger spores than I have generally seen for rooseveltensis, but broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid shape fits this species. Spores obtained from specimen D via smash mount of gill material had slightly smaller Q’ than what I have seen with rooseveltensis.

Fruit bodies with cap diameters (edge to edge arc) 3-4 cm.

Because spore morphology differs slightly frmm my concept of rooseveltensis, and because this is a newly named entity, I think a “Promising” level of confidence is appropriate, at least for the time being. I think it’s highly likely these represent this species.

On a lawn between old-growth oak and spruce. Pine in the vicinity. About 50-60 feet from obs 281460.
