This was found within yards my other find of A wellsii on MO about 3 years ago. It was the only fruiting body I found unfortunately. A long linear clearing , a man-made sandy berm, may have been part of historic logging operations(?) It was full of mosses, grasses and immature trees. The extensive surrounding mixed woods had areas with ferns and blueberries.

I am pretty confident of the ID by sight—the powdery/fluffy pale yellowish fringe and coating over pale salmon cap. The specimen will be made available to Rod Tulloss if he can use it.


The notch in the cap is from a rootlet in the way of the emerging mushroom. I have begun to clear the sandy soil from around it but it shows how just the cap was crowning from the soil.
