No specimen available

These two monocolor specimens found on upper part of slope close to wood border where small oaks are present. Mature shagbark hickory and mature white pine ~25 feet away.

The monocolor type found in this spot partially constitutes the basis for the rooseveltensis concept (as currently understood). Each of the two specimens seen here features a low umbo.

Photos labeled A or B (different specimens). Before the solar array was installed in 2013, the previously open south-facing ridge was the area where most of these were found. After the array was installed, the mushrooms (perhaps two distinct taxa) began to appear on the slope just to west of the array as well as on a nearby level area of lawn. Lately, the appearance of the mushrooms near the NW and SW edge of the array has resumed.
