When: 2018-06-19

Collection location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA [Click for map]

Who: Logan Wiedenfeld (LoganW)

Specimen available

Notes:
Growing solo or in pairs under suburban live oaks. Saccate seems fragile and inclined to stay behind in the process of excavation.

If cyclops want already taken, I’d vote for that as this mushroom’s moniker.

These were collected under three separate trees all within a hundred meters of each other.

We have a couple different species now with a dark or darkish brown center to the cap.

This on should be sequenced to see if we can improve the species concepts of such species. One that showed up in the last few days (from David Wasilewski) is Amanita cyclops. It came up in his lawn again.

Very best,

Rod

I’m curious what you make of this one. I font believe it’s in the checklist for the gulf coast. It’s so striking – gotta have a name :)
