Notes:
A single frutibody found in exactly the same spot as obs 181603 from 3 years & 1 month ago. Dark grayish-brown cap, gray UV on cap, pinkish-brown snake skin pattern on stipe and a UV skirt just above the “bulb”, and generally ellipsoid spores (a few broadly ellipsoid and elongate) at x400.
This location (a short stretch of a sandy road running through pitch pine woods) gave rise to several observations of apparently the same taxon: obs 151169, obs 151170 (= dulciarii by nrITS), obs 151171, obs 181603 and obs 181606. The last two have been submitted for sequencing by RET.

…to reflect a correction for two observations numbers (181603 & 181606).

Actually, the stipe decoration appears well-developed and organized, as usual, for this fruitbody in good shape, but its color is more subdued than in the past (dull “hot chocolate”, rather than brighter pinkish-orange). Perhaps this is because it fruited late in the season and the nights are cooler. Other than that, it’s a perfect copy of obs 181606. The colors in the pix are true even though they were taken ~1 hour before sunset.

I’m thinking that the stem decoration seems week this year.
