Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]
Who: Dave W (Dave W)
Hemlock dominated old-growth mixed woods. Mature birch present. Smaller beech present. Oak possibly in the vicinity.
Cap surface with small eye-shaped de-pigmented depressions/streaks along the outer 40% (radially).
Basal volva consisting mainly of white “plates” (mostly remaining in substrate). This may be seen in the in-situ photo (5th photo down).
“Ball gown” annulus.
Odor pleasant but faint, difficult to describe.
Spores amyloid, 7-10 × 5-6.5.
Collected after two days of very hot weather had followed heavy rainfall. I thought I had slipped my knife beneath the basal bulb. But I didn’t dig deeply enough, and part of the bulb was consequently sliced off.
NAMP accession #58758.
