Basal mycelium color

You might be right Jason. I wasn’t convinced at the time. It was an oldish specimen. I poked around in the soil at the base, and couldn’t find any mycelium, so stayed with genus level ID.

Joan, I believe I do see yellow basal mycelium creeping up the stipe base a bit. Mycelium color can be a bit tricky on these but I think its there…
