I don’t think that I have seen this particular species before.

If you find it again, I would be interested in reviewing dried material.

Very best,

Only yesterday’s collection of boletes is available.
Firstly, I thought that they are brittlegills, but then I noticed remains of volva at their base. At that day, similar mushrooms were common in the park.

Now that is unusual.

The shape of the short gills is so unusual, I can’t recall the name for it.

The stipe looks totally elongating and I think I see a partially collapsed saccate volva in the last image.

Did you see a saccate volva on the base of the stem?

If so, then this is probably a species of section Vaginatae. In fact it is probably one I’ve not seen before.

I would very much like to review part or all of your exsiccatae if you dried this material.

Very best,
